This is a squat snatch

Squat Snatch: The barbell must start on the ground and finish above the head in one motion. At the bottom of the movement, the athlete’s hips must pass below the tops of the knees at the bottom of the squat with the bar overhead. The athlete must complete the movement by fully extending the knees, hips, and elbows at the top with the bar aligned over the shoulders. While full lockout of the elbows is required to complete the rep, a bend in the elbows during the movement is allowed as long as the bar does not rest on or pass below the head.  An object may not be used at the bottom of the squat to cue depth. The athlete may drop the bar at the top if he/she chooses, but must wait for it to settle before starting the next rep. Dropping the bar before completion of the rep is a no rep. Catching the bar above parallel and riding down into the squat is allowed as long as it is done in one motion.
