With those events I’d be willing to bet that either Brian or Hafthor will walk away with the win. They are both strong in all of those events apart from the max overhead.

Agreed.  They have to be the two favorites going in.  Especially with it looking like Eddie won't be competing.

I didn't notice that, but very strange for him to do something like that, I had assumed they were just wiping it.


I did like the strapless frame carry, but they decided on 900lbs instead of the planned 1140 and I thought that was interesting, still half the people couldn't even complete it.

Was also surprised at Shaws deadlift performance, based on recent training I thought he would have came out way stronger.
