USAW Standard

Can anyone who has coached an athlete/competed/refereed a USAW sanctioned meet tell me if these CJ's would likely get white lights? If not, why specifically for each? I think I know why but would like to hear it from some experience. First meet coming up.

First CJ 295# / Second CJ 280#

Re: USAW Standard

Probably, none of your lift would have received white lights. I do refer here to the IWF rulebook (WFS) as I assume these rules apply to your competition.

Your lifts violated rules or (although that clearly depends on how strict your judges apply these rules), 2.6.2, not sure about; in general I would advise you to check section 4 of the rulebook before you go to a competition.

Re: USAW Standard

Your first lift would probably have gotten called for press-out, depending on how strict the judging is. I would have called it, though. Also, you put the bar down without showing control. Practice holding it overhead in the finished position for a second or two.

Second lift was fine. As to the other person's comments, your feet finished in line on both lifts, and your wrist wraps look fine. Remember that in competition you have to hold the bar until you receive the down signal.

Re: USAW Standard

First lift, three red lights for sure. Second lift had a press out in the left arm. There can't be any movement of the elbow after the lifter has hit the lowest point in the jerk.

Re: USAW Standard

Most of the time, I believe either of those two lifts would get red lights at a national or international level meet. Referees at local meets can be a little more forgiving, and it's certainly possible that either lift may be passed, but I would not count on it, particularly the first one.
