Wilks Coefficient: “The main function of the Wilks formula is in weightlifting involved in both Olympic and Powerlifting contests. It is used to identify the best lifters across the different bodyweight categories and can also be used to compare men and women lifters as there are formulas for both gender. First, second and third places on the winner’s podium within their own age, bodyweight and gender classes are awarded to the competitors who lift the most weight respectively. Where two lifters in a class achieve the same combined total lifted weight the lighter lifter is determined the winner.” (Wikipedia)
