Welcome to the 2022 Baltimore Open! One of the Mid Atlantic major meets is back and this year's event will not disappoint. We'll have great lifting and great fun in a local meet run under the quality of strict National/IWF standards.

NOVICE DIVISION is limited to athletes who have competed in fewer than two USAW-sanctioned meets.

RULES: The Baltimore Open is conducted under National/IWF meet standards and rules with one exception. Athletes who are over their registered weight at weigh-in and do not make weight within the weigh-in period will have the option of lifting in the higher weight class. But, the athlete MUST appear at weigh-in for the registered session first. The current USAW and IWF rules are available at:

https://www.iwf.net/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2020/01/IWF_TCRR_2020.pdf

Of particular note regarding rules

  1. Photo ID and proof of current USAW registration required at weigh-in. For youth athletes, a passport or copy of birth certificate will suffice.
  2. All lifters must wear a singlet to compete.
  3. Weightlifting belts may be no wider than 12 cm/4.75 in.
  4. Athletes must declare their opening attempts in the snatch and the clean & jerk in kilos at weigh-in.
  5. Consistent with prior Baltimore Opens, IWF Rule 6.2.4 will be in effect.
  6. Athletes and coaches will need passes for the warm up area, provided at weigh-in. For 2022, due to COVID restrictions, athletes are limited to themselves and one coach/attendant in the warm up area (two passes). For each additional athlete in a session, the team will be given an additional two passes (one for the athlete, one for another coach).
  7. USAW rules mandate that lifters control the bar down, maintaining contact until past the shoulders (i.e. do not slam or spike the bar, do not drop the bar from the overhead position). First violation will result in a warning to the lifter and coach. Second violation will result in disqualification for the meet.
  8. Youth lifters and lifters under the age of 18 on the day of the meet MUST wear a singlet to weigh-in. Athletes over the age of 18 may wear a singlet to weigh-in but in all cases the singlet is included in the body weight read on the scale
  9. Placing footwear on the bar on the competition platform constitutes a "No Lift."
