This modern and exciting twist takes the best of weightlifting, adds the lights and sounds of WZA, and puts it in a bracketed, head-to-head format. Beginning Thursday, athletes will be challenged in the opening round with alternating minutes of the snatch, and after a brief reset, the clean & jerk.
The athlete with the higher sinclair total (explained at the link) advances in the bracket. Round two features just the snatch, the semi-finals, the clean and jerk, and the finals, at night under the lights, will feature both lifts again.
To qualify to compete, you may submit a previously submitted total from a USAW meet, or take a video of you weighing yourself and hitting your two heaviest lifts, which you’ll submit upon registering.
