Olympic Weightlifting Meet is Tomorrow!

The Roots Spring Oly Meet is tomorrow and Roots couldn’t be more excited.  Read below for competitor and spectator information.
Both men’s and women’s flights look very strong!  Come check out the action as the 2014 Roots Oly season gets underway. Spectators are strongly encouraged!
Lifter Details:
This meet is not USAW sanctioned so singlets and USAW membership are not required – also we will have set flights, no re-ordering by attempt; all other USAW rules will apply. We will follow a no press-out rule for the snatch and clean and jerk. Lifters have three attempts of each lift.
There will be dedicated warm-up areas. There is one competition platform. When you come in, please put your things along the wall with the green, artificial turf.  Prizes awarded to the top man and women lifter and determined by the Sinclair Coefficient. There are not weight classes, however, your weight is a factor in the coefficient.
Spectators:
Spectators and fans are highly encouraged.  Come cheer on your friends, sip coffee, and see what an Oly meet is all about!
