I think this is Shaw miles ahead (unless he burns out due to length of competition.) In the finals he should win Train Push and Keg Toss. Toolbox deadlift for reps is one he can win. He will place well in every other event in final.
Luke S should do well on max log and train. A lighter deadlift will suit him.
Novi may struggle with fingers and train events that favour taller heavier guys. Struggle as in not top 5 and toothache doesn't help.
I think Tom S will be pushing him for podium if his size doesn't hinder him in loading moving events.
Prediction
1) Shaw
2) Luke S
3) Novi/Tom S


While I would love to see Brian win another title... I just can't see it and genuinely think he's well past his best. I hope he proves me wrong though.

After Shaw had 'perfect' events for him last year and didn't come close to winning, I don't think it will happen this year. His weight loss will mean his static strength will be down and he will still be slow on the medley. But yes, he will probably win keg toss.

Novikov will probably win...even after missing a few weeks of training, he still has months to make up for it and he wasn't injured. Everything will click together in his final month of prep.

I want Pritchett or Caron to win.

Wouldn't surprise me if Bobby Thompson won both static events. I think Evan Singleton will have a bigger impact as well.

Too many athletes taking points from Shaw.

so does that mean some groups wont do overhead but 'pickaxe hold' instead?

that would suck balls if so.

Agree. For log:

Graham Hicks
Luke S
Bobby Thompson
Robert Oberst
Trey Mitchel
Tom S

All potentially stronger. Novikov, JF, Pritchett unlikely to lose to him on log too. You canít drop that many points and come first unless you dominate everything else, which heíll struggle to do.

Itís strange, for about 2.5 years it was abundantly clear who the top 3 in the world were. Then one retired and two got injured. Now two WSMs in a row that are very hard to call. Like a true nerd, Iím going to go away and do some calculations then come up with my prediction!

Shaw's older and really needs the Friday rest day. Last year that got taken with storm. It was 4 days straight of light events that suited young fit guys.

We should do a top 4 prediction.
The highest total points, of your 3 best scoring athletes, wins the title Sugden's Greatest Savant.
Losers do pushups for the difference between their prediction total and the winners.

Went whole hog and did a top 10. Will consider moving to the states and becoming a tv prophet if it works out

Like Mr. Willsan said it makes much more sense to do this once the groups are announced! If Bish makes the final he could do very well but I think thereís so much strength in depth nowadays that a lot of very very good athletes canít take making the final for granted.

Oberst is lightning quick and easily the strongest statically.

The Stoltmans run through the events here:

They have Bish for Frame/Yoke Giants Meadley and Deadlift for reps and Hixxy and Luke for Log Max.

I'll also get the spreadsheet out but groups are needed first!
