    I was just wondering if there was an official ruling on whether we can use a GS style for snatches during the TSC. I’ve trained in this style for a long time and just feels very natural to me.

    My heel does go up on the lifting and dropping phase of the snatch as well. Not sure if this is allowed as well.

    Hi @SuperGirevik
    The rules for TSC are explained very extensively and when the TSC rules you'll find the rules for each lift - yes: also The Snatch.
    Go look for yourself in the TSC section and see if the GS style is allowed. I will not reveal it here spoil the moment ROFL;)

    BTW - GS Snatch is awesome!

    Kind Regards

    @Martin Joe - I looked at the rules before and going by the description of the snatch, it would appear that the GS style is allowed. In fact it doesn’t mention any specific styles in the rules.

    I was just hoping to get an official answer :)

    Here are the rules...

    I hope an official will answer you question which is good and relevant.

    @Brett Jones

    I think the same as you (when reading the rules): GS style is allowed
