Weight Over Bar

May be called WOB or Weight for Height

The women's weight for WOB is similar to WFD, but has a handle attached directly to the weight. The weight is tossed over a cross bar with one hand. Throwers are allowed three attempts at each successive height. When the thrower has missed three attempts at any one height they are eliminated from advancing any higher in the competition. The WOB weight is 28 pounds except for Women's Masters and Lightweights at 21 pounds.
