Format of Competition:

Scoring:

Ties will be broken by bodyweight (less weight scores higher).  Overall Scoring: Percentage based scoring will be used.  For example, if 100 kg wins the Rolling Thunder, that athlete will receive 100 points.  If the second-place athlete lifts 90kg, they will receive 90 points.  The winner is the athlete with the most points at the end of the contest.  Should two athletes tie, the athlete with the lower body weight at the time of weigh ins will place higher.
