Randy
For time:
75 snatches (75 / 55 lb.)

Notes
This event begins with the athlete on a starting mat. At the sound of the beep, the athlete moves forward and performs 75 snatches (25 at each rep mat). Once the last rep is complete, the athlete will set the barbell back on the floor, jump over it, move to the finish mat and the event is complete.

Scoring
The athlete's score is his or her total time for completing the event.


Movement Standards

Snatch
In the snatch, the barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one smooth motion. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then overhead is a no rep. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing. 

At the top, the barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.

The barbells will be shorter than conventional bars. The space between the sleeves will be 43 inches for both men and women.

Movement Standards

Thruster
This is a standard barbell thruster in which the barbell moves from the bottom of a front squat to full lockout overhead. The hip crease must pass below the knees. A full squat clean into the thruster is allowed if the bar is on the ground.

At the top, the barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body. 

Rope Climb
In the rope climb, the athlete ascends the rope to touch the cross beam at the top. Jumping up to begin each ascent is permitted. On the descent, the athlete must show control and may not drop from the rope until their hands touch below the designated 9-foot mark.
