Ok I'll bite. They look really similar to me. The lifter on the left is slightly taller and the bar moves front-back slightly more, but other than that, I couldn't see much difference.

Can you elaborate a little?

the one lady with the yellow trace comes out of "the hole" faster and has an extra bounce as evidenced by the path of the yellow trace.

a very interesting video to study that I've slow-downed and re-played now many times.

The lifter with the green trace, seems to have a more explosive extension, her feet come higher off the ground, and her catch is more stable. The lifter with the yellow trace seems to let the bar get a little behind her center in the catch and leans further forward to compensate.

Looked pretty similar to me however it looked as though the girl on the right tended to bend over more on the first pull however the bar path was straighter, and when I paused the video it looked like the girl on the left got much more extension in the second pull and seemed to recieve the bar more stable

iron maven is run by ms tracy fober out of st. louis, mo. tracy is a physical therapist that loves oly lifting. she owns a dartfish program that traces the path of the bar duing various lifts. she can film from the side and 3.4 angle at the same time to get various views on the bar duing lift off, explosion, and completion. good stuff for evaluation of the lifter. the gal on the right is natalie woolfolk, my son casey's squeeze and the nat. record holder of all lifts in the 63 kg class and will no doubt be going to the 08 olympic games. the gal on the left is aimee anaya a 69 kg lifter from mikes gym who came out of retirement last year and is trying to make the games.
