EVENT 1

30mm Grippers

 - Athletes will be allowed three attempts to close the highest rated gripper possible.

  - Each attempt will have a thirty second time limit, beginning once the athlete starts setting the gripper.

  - Athletes are NOT required to use all three attempts.

  - You can still use your remaining attempts if you happen to fail your first or second attempt.

 - A 30mm setting block must be passed completely between the handles in clear view of a judge before closing the gripper. 

 - The gripper handles must be confirmed by a judge as clearly touching before the gripper is released by the athlete.

  - Each attempt will be filmed by another judge in the event it needs to be reviewed.

 - Only magnesium chalk can be used on the athlete’s hands.

 - The gripper must be closed with spring pointing upwards. Various angles will be allowed, but the gripper cannot be held upside down.

 - The free hand may only be in contact with the gripper during the set. Once the set block is passed through the handles, the free hand may not touch the gripper or any part of the gripping arm.
 

 - In the event that an athlete has an open cut on their setting hand, they may be able to cover it with up to 2 layers of medical tape/bandage, to keep bleeding and contamination under control.
