How to play weightlifting?
Weightlifting competition involves the weightlifters attempting two lifts, namely the snatch and the clean and the jerk . The winners are usually decided on the maximum amount of weight lifted in each lift and overall, which includes the combination of the two lifts.
In weightlifting, two lifts using both hands should be performed in the sequence mentioned below -
- The Snatch
- The Clean and the Jerk
For each lift a participant is allowed a maximum of three laps.
The participant must pull the horizontal bar placed in front of their legs, gripped with the palm down, from the platform to the maximum extension of both arms above the head. This must be done in one movement with a position of jambe folded or split.
During the implementation of the lift, the platform can only be touched by the feet, and no other part. The barbell lift should be held in a still position, with the arms and legs fully extended and the feet in the same line as before the bar lift. As soon as the whole body of the lifter becomes still, the referees give the signal to lower the weight and the snatch is finished.
The Cleaner and the Jerk
In this type of lifting, the first part is a jerk. The participant must pull the horizontal bar placed in front of his legs, grasped with the palm down, from the platform to the shoulders.
The second part of the lift is jerk . From the clean position, the lift should stretch its legs and bent arms until it reaches a full position with the weight firmly grasped. The participant must ensure that his feet are back in the same line as before lifting the weight. As soon as the referees find all parts of his body still, they signal to the athlete to lower the bar, making sure the clean and jerk is complete.
Three attempts are given to each lifter to perform the snatch and the cleaning and jerk. In the first session, participants should complete their three snatch attempts in turn. After a 10 minute break, the weightlifters complete their three snatch attempts.ais on clean and jerk.
Three arbitrators are appointed and each has the same rights of decision and verdict on an elevator.
After an athlete attempts to lift, the referees must give a "DOWN" signal. The "DOWN" signal can be either for a "Good Lift", signaled by pressing the white button, or a "No Lift", signaled by pressing the red button.
As soon as two out of three referees give an identical decision, a good “DOWN” signal is given to the rudder to lower the bar on the platform. Three (3) seconds after a cumulative “DOWN” signal is displayed, the individual referee's decision is displayed.
A referee is free to reverse his decision in the event that a participant fails to lower the bar according to the prescribed rules and regulations. The decision must be changed within three seconds of the initial decision. In the event that the allotted time of three seconds exceeds, the refereecan change their decision by showing a red flag.
There is an official weight assigned for each lift. A participant must attempt to lift the official weight to obtain the highest score. The athlete can then choose to try higher magnitude weights during the event.
Once the highest value has been collected for each lift, the total weight lifted in the snatch is added to the total weight lifted in the clean and jerk. This lift is considered the champion, who lifted the highest combined weight. In the event of a tie, the athlete with less body weight is declared champion. If they are equal even in the bodyweight category, then the athlete who attempted the first lift is declared the winner.
