Strong stuff on Sunday. Most impressive performance of day 2 by far. Makes me jealous I'm only a little guy. He was humble all day too and that was almost as awesome as the numbers

I'm not pretending to be an internet judge, Dave is strong as hell, and probaly would've had no issues sinking that squat another 1-2", but I still think the squat may have been a bit high, but you can't confirm or deny it from the available angle. Regardless, the judges say what they needed to give whites, don't knock the lifter. Nice power Dave!

Before even seeing the videos I was prepared to post "At least the deadlift looked good" Silly me. Anyways, sometimes you just know what you're going to see. Am I prejudiced? Do I have to be Bill Gates to tell there are flaws in Windows? Michael Jordan to say Minnesota sucks? Congrats Mr. Hoff, the numbers keep rising.

i see were back to only applauding the lifters regardless. i see my comment gets deleted afte stating the fact that the squat was high (we can obviously tell from ipf squats from the front that they are good) even from the fron angle. but whatever, this is why powerlifting is going down the drain.....

And the deadlift was a nolift, the ref gave a downsignal after he started lowering the bar... And got the lift regardless of his unlocked position.

[/quote] my first post got deleted. and on the second i forgot to say about the deadlift... had he not dropped it instantly it wouldve slipped out of his hand. im not saying i can do better, as i do not lift in multi-ply gear. my point is that time after time lifts like these are passed and we wonder why powerlifting is so divided? i mean come on people!

That was a legal squat according to SPF rules and it can be seen in the video. [Rules for the Squat A legal squat is performed when the top of the upper thigh at the hip (the “crease” of the hip) passes below the height of the knee.] The video angle actually happens to be above the line of sight for the judges, so take into account that if the video line of sight were actually at the level of the side judges, you would be able to see the crease of the hip even deeper than what you can see now. My brother has been working in the film industry for almost 15 years. I had asked for his professional opinion taking into consideration the limitations of video recordings and he pretty much concurs that the judges did in fact call it correctly. You can take that however you wish, bottom line the judges called it as they saw it. Congratulations Dave!!! Awesome work!!!
