NewLifterTip: 
How to win in powerlifting: The highest total in the weight class wins. If two lifters have the same total, the lighter lifter wins. If two lifters have the same total and the same bodyweight, the lifter that achieved the total first wins. If two lifters achieve the same total and that total is an American Record, the lighter lifter wins the meet but the lifter that achieved the total first gets the record.
