Well if the chat is correct the newest trend in fitness is going to be oranges and saying the latter half of your name as a shout then. all seriousness hell of a way to cement your win.

Dropped only 4 of the most dominant performances ever.

He is only going to get better.

I wonder if Shaw is going to retire after this? I think the shortened format doesn’t suit him at all, but I think he’s probably past it anyway.

I don't think Shaw will retire. Lots of positives to take away from the comp as a whole.

In the heat

Good truck pull
Good deadlift
Good dumbbell
Farmers and yoke also went well


Squats were good
OH was good
Stones went well

At the moment he is strong but slow. it will suit him in other comps more such as the Arnolds.

WILLSAN said:the thing is when you start meddling with things as tv shows do, not only does it ruin it as a sporting spectacle, it makes it worse as a tv show too. case in point, one of the best athletes in the field not making the final.

although it is a tv show, it needs to take the viewers with it as a sporting contest. if you mess with rules and fair play too much they will catch on and switch off. something which will be accelerated in an age where people communicate online and dont have to be spoon fed whatever is on the tele.

'shows' only work if you keep up the illusion and all the social media comments slamming the comp suggest it might be slipping.

I agree in principal, however the mere fact the organisers screen it as entertainment at christmas rather than a live or soon after to me shows how little regard they have for strongman as an actual sport. We could have this same discussion year after year and I try not to get dragged in.
Remember its just a but of fun telly. (sad but true)

The Americans are getting it aired 30th of June. Actually a half decent turnaround.

wasnt a million miles off and got all 3...great to see strongman about moving and explosion again and less about freak size and static strength.

I said:1. Special K
2. Thor
3. Shaw or Licis.

He didn't just win, he put in the best display in a WSM final since Pudz in 03 IMO.
