2019 USAW Nationals

Unlike most prior events where we post the photos on facebook, we are instead posting a list of zip files with one for each session. This is because of a few reasons but the primary one is because of Facebook upload caps and the annoyance of taking 5-6 days to upload session albums just because of those limits. A secondary one is that Facebook reduces picture quality a lot and our photos look worse after being uploaded there.

At the 2019 USAW Nationals, we took photos of 26 sessions as well as video only for +87A (so 27 sessions of video). For most sessions, we cover the vast majority of lifts. However, a few of the sessions are just part of the session and we were also swiveling between platforms so there were lots of situations where we had to decide which platform to shoot. Usually we prioritized later attempts when possible but we also tended to shoot the bigger of the two lifts going on.

Here are the photos (right-click and then choose “save file as” or “save link as”). See the notes section below if you have any questions:

A couple of other things to note here:

  • We have reviewed most of these files. But given that there are tens of thousands of pictures that we will post, there could easily be a mistake in how something is cropped or something might be out of focus or poorly framed. However, if you don’t see a photo shown of a lift, then that means that we don’t have it (maybe it was out of focus, maybe we weren’t sitting there at that moment, etc). There also could be photos in the wrong album or similar — if you notice that, please let us know at support@hookgrip.com.
  • Use a computer to download these, not a phone or tablet.
  • We can’t provide tech support for these files. We’ve tested the files and they’re working for us but we can’t guarantee everything will go smoothly with your computer. If you need support due to technical issues, you can buy your data here: https://store.hookgrip.com/shop/digital-media/. We will be able to provide tech support for purchases.
  • We do have 4k 120fps videos for this meet but they are not free because there’s no good way that we know of to mass watermark and distribute videos in a cost and time effective manner. If you’d like your videos, you can purchase them at the digital media link above. We also post a lot of videos over the course of time on our country instagram pages so videos could also show up there for some lifters.
  • These are big files. Depending on your internet speed, they may take several minutes to download. Be patient.
