Ramunas didn't look in top shape, but rammed this 210 up pretty easy. It looked good, but was turned down 2-1 (I overheard the center ref also say he overturned his initial decision).
IWF Rule 2.7.2 states that it is incorrect "Any deliberate oscillation of the barbell to gain advantage. The athlete and the barbell have to become motionless before starting the jerk". By this rule, the refs were correct in their call, he did not become motionless.
I personally don't like the rule, I think if you have the timing and ability to use the momentum of the clean to assist the jerk, you should be able to, but thats neither here nor there :)
