Guidelines for Competitors
The expected standard of dress for competitors who are new to Weightlifting competitions is that clothing must not be loose, and that elbows should be clearly visible. These rules allow referees to adjudicate appropriately. If a T-Shirt and shorts are worn, the T-Shirt must be tucked in. Tights may be worn, with or without shorts over the top.
Competitors who are regular participants in competition should wear competition apparel which abides by the International Rules of Weightlifting. This means wearing a lifting costume.
All competitors should be aware that the maximum width of a Weightlifting belt is 12cm.
The competition format will follow the 'ascending bar principle', as normal. This means that competitors choosing the lightest weights go first, and the bar only goes up in weight during the course of the session.
Help is always on hand for new participants but you are advised to contact the competition director - Leo Isaac on mobile 0423767955 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the competition. You can also request help via the Weightlifting Tasmania Facebook page.
