All athletes who complete the gauntlet will move onto the call out round. There will be one bar set up starting at 95 lbs for females and 195 lbs for males. Upon having their name called athletes will have 30 seconds to approach the bar and complete the lift. After all athletes have lifted ten pounds will be added to the bar and the next round will commence. Snatch competition will end when the final athlete can no longer complete a lift.
