SCORE PROTOCOL - VIDEO RECORDING

There are three possibilities:

1. Good score: all lifts are executed in the right way. Judge gives "good lift". Score will be validated.

2. Partially good score: one or two lifts are judged as "no lift". The total will be corrected to the total of the "good lifts"

3. No score: all lifts are judged as "no lift". Score will be 0 (zero).

If there is a tie score within a subdivision the lifter with the lowest bodyweight is the winner.

There is no possibility for appeal on any decision. Athletes have six opportunities to set a good score.

VIDEO PROTOCOL

The video link copied in the score at the Competition Corner must lead to a film on Youtube.

The recording must be unbroken and of reasonable quality.
