Biathlon Score will be calculated by the following method:
For double bell athletes – Jerk = 1pt, snatch =1/2pt


Gada Sport Competition will be Gada Mace 10/2 using Evil Munkey Mace.

This will be a 10’ AMRAP event. Each pull over the shoulder of the competition 10/2 is worth .5 points (hands). Left and right pull is a complete rep for a full point.
