Rankings System
The ranking of the competitors within the North American Grip Sport field, is based upon an average of the athete's points performance.
Going forward, all contests will be based on 100 points awarded per individual event and 500 points for the entire contest.
Finishing 1st place in one event is awarded 100 points. Finishing second place is awarded a proportionate score based on the first place performance.
So let's say Lifter A finishes in first place with a 182lb Gripper close and Lifter B comes in second with a 175lb close. Lifter A is awarded 100 points for first place and Lifter B gets 96.154 points (175/182 X 100).
At the end of event 1, the score is Lifter A  100 points, Lifter B  96.154, etc.
At the end of this contest, Lifter A ends up with 435 total points, Lifter B  405, etc.
As the season continues, the competition totals are averaged out in order to come to the ranking for each athlete.
After 3 competitions, Lifter A has a total of 1290 points, so his average is 430. This is the best average in the organization, so Lifter A is ranked #1. Lifter B's average is 410, which is second best in the organization, so he is ranked second, and so on...
If a contest involves more or less than five events, the contest point total for each athlete could potentially be more or less than 500 points. In order to accurately compare performances at contests with different numbers of events, the following multipliers are used:
 3event Contest => Total X 1.67 => Proportionate total for 5event contest. Esample: Total 285 X 1.666 = Proportionate Total of 474.81 (Rounded to 475)
 4event Contest => Total X 1.25 => Proportionate total for 5event contest. Example: Total 380 X 1.25 = Proportionate Total of 475
 6event Contest => Total X .833 => Proportionate total for 5event contest. Example: Total 570 X .833 = Proportionate Total of 474.81 (Rounded to 475)
 7event Contest => Total X .714 => Proportionate total for 5event contest. Example: Total 665 X .714 = Proportionate Total of 474.81 (Rounded to 475)
* The resulting Proportionate Total is then rounded up to the nearest full point
