Contest is now sanctioned - so all results are eligible for the Top 50 Lists.

Additional information

Percentage scoring will be used - rising bar on all events - 4 attempts except for the Sledge and of course the Medley.  Everyone will have to take the Sledge base weight (23.4#) - then rising bar until you fail - three misses and you're out.  Medley will be approximately 20 items with different point values for difficulty - example might be 30 - 40 - 50# Blobs for 1 - 2- or 3 points (you only get the highest point value - not all three).

Any questions just ask.

If this was at least 1 week later I would totally be there.

Sorry - not my contest to make changes - I'm just helping out and providing some equipment on this one.  I think you'd really enjoy the sledge event!  I had it at Gripmas 2012 - Durniant won with a 50# lift.

Just want to bump this - it's looking like a small but quality contest.  Nick's bringing a monster - it looks like he may be the man to beat.  At least he won't be in my weight class :).  I'm on track to hit almost the same sledge number I did back in 2012.  My pinch and Axle are both way down from back then.  My Medley performance is going to really be sad if current training is any indication.

Sorry to say the contest has been cancelled due to lack of competitors.
