Are you competing in the 2017 World Weightlifting Championships? Do you want to compete in the 2017 CrossFit Liftoff, powered by Rogue? Good news: You can do both. At the same time.
CrossFit is offering the opportunity for competitors in the World Weightlifting Championships to use their competition lifts as valid submissions for the Liftoff in the snatch and clean and jerk categories. There are cash and gear prizes on the line.
Here’s how it works:
The athlete must submit a video to CrossFit that is uncut and unedited. The video must show the entire lift and include the athlete stepping on a scale to show their current body weight. This means the athlete must have a scale somewhere near the lifting platform to record their body weight just before or after they lift.
First, someone must record the athlete stating their name, the Liftoff password and the amount they are attempting to lift. Then they must record the entire lift. They can record the athlete’s body weight either before or after the lift as long as the video is uncut.
CrossFit’s rules and movement standards apply to any athlete competing in the Liftoff.
The 2017 CrossFit Liftoff starts Thursday, Nov. 30, with the announcement of the CrossFit workout. The competition concludes Monday, Dec. 4, at 5 p.m. PT. Get more details here.
