Weigh in

- Lifters must weigh in wearing the same clothing and equipment (straps/shoes) that they will wear to lift. You should not wear shoes to weigh in.

- You do not have to wear a singlet to compete, shorts and T-shirt are OK.

- Lifters must be fully visible when stepping onto the scale and must show the weight displayed on the scale.

- To allow for the clothing worn whilst weighing in, 1kg will be taken off the weight shown on the scale display.  For example if you step onto the scales in a singlet, socks and wrist wraps and the display indicates 95.5kg, the officials will record your bodyweight as 94.5kg

- When the lifter begins the weigh in process start a timer or display clock in the weigh in area. The clock or timer must be visible in either the video or photo submission.

- Your lifts must be completed within 3 hours of your weigh in. E.g weigh in filmed at 10am, lifts filmed between 10am and 1pm. You may lift immediately after weighing in.

The Lift

- Lifters must submit two videos with a visible clock or timer that has been continuous since weigh in.  Each video may contain up to three attemps of the snatch and clean & jerk lift, your highest succesful attempt will count towards your Total.

- Videos must show the lifters full body at all times from the start to the end of the lift, including full overhead lockout.

- Camera must be placed directly in front of the lifter and raised to approximately chest height.  Videos filmed from the ground or from the side will not be accepted.

- If you have a lock out issue before starting the lift show the judges your full extension, pause, then lift.

- Weights will only be accepted in kilograms.

- After each attempt you must show the weight loaded on each side of the bar, clearly showing the weight marking on each disc.


- Pulling straps are not allowed.

- Submissions that do not include a weigh in will be rejected.

- In the case of a tie the athlete whose time stamp indicates the earlier successful Total will win.

- Videos that do not display the weights before/after the lifts will be rejected.


- Submissions will be reviewed a BWL Technical Official.

- Every lift will be given a rating out of 5-stars and given a pass/fail comment

- Lifters will receive an approval email when their results are available in the competition video gallery.

- Contact for submission questions.


- The competition will rank every submission in each category for the final results with highest Total winning.

- The final standings will be published within 1 week of the close of the competition.

- Totals from this competition can be used for qualification to national events and included in the BWL rankings (members only).
