An Olympic Weightlifting Competition

Sunday, December 19, 2021 

Have you ever wanted to compete in an Olympic Weightlifting competition? Here’s your chance!


The Reinvented Jingle-Lift is open to anyone that wants to experience an Olympic Weightlifters Competition.


All major rules will be followed as per USA Weightlifting Rules and the winner will be determined using the Sinclair Total.



In the sport of weightlifting the IWF recognizes two (2) lifts which must be executed in the following sequence:


a) The Snatch 

b) The Clean & Jerk 


Both lifts must be executed with two hands. A maximum of three (3) attempts is allowed in each lift. 



The barbell is centered horizontally on the competition platform. The athlete takes the start position behind the barbell. The athlete grips the barbell and bends at the knees. The barbell is gripped, palms downward, and pulled in a single movement from the platform to the full extent of both arms above the head, while either splitting or bending the legs. It is the sole responsibility of the athlete to complete each lift in accordance with the satisfaction of the on-duty Technical Officials.



  • Every competitor will get 6 official lifts in total - 3 snatches and 3 Clean and Jerks. 

  • The winner is declared by Sinclair Total.

  • There will be 3 judges, one lifter at a time, the weight never goes down.

  • All competitors will be divided into 2 teams and assigned a coach a week prior to the event.

  • The major rules in regards to timing and what is allowed as a lift will be followed. Rules that require singlets and weightlifting shoes will be waived. (Full Rules for this competition will be administered through email).


(The Sinclair Total is calculated by taking an athlete’s total (combined max snatch and clean & jerk) and multiplying that number by the Sinclair Coefficient. A “coefficient” is a mathematical term you might remember from algebra that basically just means “a constant number by which a variable is multiplied.” In weightlifting jargon, the coefficient is the number that Sinclair came up with to represent an athlete’s bodyweight, and the variable is the athlete’s weightlifting total.)


PRICE (Member & Non-Member)


A portion of the fee will be used as a donation to purchase holiday gifts for the Center for Hope and Safety, a shelter for victims and their children of domestic violence.
