I disagree with this. Do not punish a lifter for working harder and being the better athlete. Most mindset today is everyone is suppose to be a winner...I guess I'm old school...if you want to be the best, beat the best. If a lifter enters multiple divisions and belts are given for those divisions and he/she has the highest body coefficient, then the belt should go to them. Who wants to receive a belt knowing they were beaten but got it by process that the other lifter already had one. If you don't like the fact that some lifters win multiple belts, WORK HARDER !!!
With that said, since we are having rising numbers in most state meets, I would like to see some type of incentive to the overall body coefficient winner in the largest portion of the state meet. Maybe not a belt due to the cost but how about a rather large trophy or anything like that. We are now putting more emphasis on the state meets, then reward those who lead those meets !!!
Just a food for thought, maybe Rich could chime in on this one.
