From Derek Boyer's Facebook Page-

"Regretfully I pulled out of the 2013 masters Worlds Strongest Man Comp/ Belfast in protest after I just saw the horrific injury of simon flint of england on the car flipping event. No spotters or paramedics or notice that we were to do this event until we turned up. when i asked why there were no spotters I was told the TV production thought it would not look good for spotters to be there. I draw the line when the event promoter puts TV before athlete safety and effectively pulled out of a very badly organised competition."

wtf is happening over there?

Find that surprising.
Do competitors have to sign something that says they won't sue if they get injured due to malfunctioning equipment, unforeseen circumstance etc?
Franco Columbo sued WSM for a reported million dollars.


there are always disclaimers to sign. but, if you put on a dangerous event without any safety precautions and someone gets hurt I dont think theyd be worth much in court.

The first event was meant to be Duck Walk to Sled Drag but was swopped for car roll.

Simon was in the last pairing, he was looking forward to it as he has done it before and feeling confident. We were watching from the other side of the car... it started going over then suddenly back down and Simon was screaming in pain... everyone ran over but he wasn't trapped... I don't know if the car came down onto his knee or if his leg went under the strain and he fell back... anyway, I think he detached his patella and his wife said he will be requiring surgery... lets all wish the big guy a speedy recovery.

The paramedics were on the scene in about 5 minutes... I don't know about spotters for the event, I think it would be difficult to do.

I had never done a car roll before. After Simon's incident a few people said they had concerns when I did it as it started coming back on me at one point but because it was such an unknown I was very aggressive and got under it and got it going again, so I guess I was lucky... its obviously not something you stop and think about at the time.

Car role pretty much disappeared after what happened to philipi at wsm

When you did see it there were always guys with barrels spotting, not that they would have done any good

From Magnús Ver Magnússon

Statement on Derek Boyer pulling out of the 2013 Masters Worlds Strongest Man comp/Belfast !!! Events are subject to change in any strongman contest in the World !!! Simon Flint unfortunately blew out his knee on the lift in the car roll !!! This was not due to equipment or spotter failure !!! This is an extreme sport and injuries do happen !!! We all know that and most of us have had their fair share of it !!! I wish Simon a speedy recovery !!!
4 x Worlds Strongest Man

Will is very much correct. Negligently cared for equipment could not be defended with a disclaimer.
