Paralympics powerlifting bench press...
I know they only do bench but...I was watching earlier and very impressed with the 75kg women, top bench press of 148kg (146kg within the comp) World Record; if they were going for a new World Record, due to smashing one within the comp itself, they were permitted to go for one extra attempt, in addition to their 3 lifts, but it remained outside of their comp score.
It was really strange to watch, seeing someone lift the barbell which looked perfectly fine 3 times in a row only to be denied every lift
To the question though which is about bench form...
So, how do these rules alter from non-Paralympic powerlifting bench press rules?
36.5 kg /80.3 lb Middle-Finger DL (right hand)...

In powerlifting most feds allow you to have a team member unrack for you. I believe you may be able to unrack yourself, though I am not sure on that one.
I am not sure that shaking by itself is not allowed. Someone else might chime in on this one.
