There is an interesting conversation going on in the forums right now about legs touching the bar during a clear hip or free hip. Is there a deduction for the legs touching? Leave a comment and let us know.

Can the judges even tell of the legs touch?...I can't

Here's the video of the above image.

Once again, leave a comment and let us know. Are the legs allowed to touch the bar in a clear hip?
