(Sport: Tug-of-War)


When the judge receives the signal from the two coaches that everybody is in position, he calls out "Pick up the rope," and the competitors extend their arms forward and horizontally. The judge will then shout "Take the strain," and raise both hands above his head as the team members put sufficient strain on to the rope. The judge will finally expose the palms of his hand with the added word "Steady," and then after a slight pause shout the word "Start."
