The other two medals were given to her for being the highest lifter in the clean and snatch phase.
Several researchers have attempted to determine the percentage of one repetition maximum that yields maximal power output in the power clean and snatch but the results have varied between 70% to 80% (1,2,4,11,14).
In testing sessions three and four peak power output, peak velocity, average power output, and average velocity of power clean and snatch were obtained at the loads of 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90% of one repetition max.
One repetition maximum (1RM) was obtained for both the power clean and snatch during testing session two.
The proper technique of both the power clean and snatch emphasizes the bar moving in a straight, vertical path from start to finish, therefore the horizontal movement in both of these lifts should be minimized and the TENDO unit should be a reliable, valid measure of power output.
In testing sessions three and four peak power output, peak velocity, average power output, and average velocity of their power clean and snatch were obtained at the loads of 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90% of one repetition max.
The primary purpose of this research was to determine the optimal load of 1 RM that yields the greatest power output in the power clean and snatch.
Prior investigations have not examined the optimal percentage of 1 RM that yields the highest power output in the snatch or compared power output characteristics between the power clean and snatch.
These are the same movements emphasized in the power clean and snatch movements, thus these exercise should be used in training to increase running and jumping performance at 80% 1 RM or above.
Giant New Zealander Nigel Avery set a new best Games mark of 215kg to clinch gold in the clean and snatch, and was also the overall combined winner.
