I can snatch more than the written benchmark, but i am not able to do HSPUs and have a slower FRAN record. Do i still count as Intermediate Athlete?

Yes, as written, all these benchmarks are guidelines. If you are a little bit better with Snatches but way worse with Fran, you still qualify as Intermediate Athletes. It is important, that your overall performance level is “Intermediate”. If you still are unsure, please send us some competitions that you attended in the past and your Open23 ranking via email info@austrianthrowdown.at and we will let you know if the Intermediate Division is the correct division for you.
