At our meets it would be nice if the announcer would tell the audience (and the judges) as to what class and division(open, Masters, submasters...) the lifter is lifting in.
That way when someone is lifting raw and someone is lifting equipped the audience will know. It also would help judges as well. For example you have a lifter lifting in both powersports and unequipped bench press. Lets assume they make a record attempt that impacts unequipped bench. The lifter is wearing wrist raps. The judges do not know so the lifter gets credit in unequipped bench press with equipment that is not allowed. Another very common scenario is a lifter doing both equipped and unequipped. Their attempt equipped is recorded as unequipped.
When you compete unequipped you get no assistance from equipment so it would be nice for it to be noted when you are stage so when an equipped lifter lifts the audience understands they have an advantage. Thanks for the consideration. Best regards,
