June 13-15th ish...in Florida.

I actually quite like the date. Far enough away from Arnold's and Europe for a good prep and athletes to get over injuries.


Location i guess is good also regarding facilities and food etc.

Not sure if they're changing the format or just listed final dates.

Licis will do wonders, Thor looks unstoppable, special K i think will come in injury free and dangerous.

Shaw and Janashia have some question marks on them.

Should be a great comp.

Event prediction

Max axle deadlift
Barbell for reps
Plane pull
Stones
Yoke
Maybe loading or a grip event

Wouldn't surprise me if they test grip to stop Thor walking it.

Do we have a list of confirmed athletes yet?

I'd love to see Brian win another title.

Doubt he can win another mate. Would love him to.


I think Thor will take some stopping and Licis is getting beastly!!

Yeah there's been rumours that they may be dropping the heats and the number of athletes?

Very curious to see what format they use to cover it in 4 days.

Ultimately it is a tv show

They have been looking for new ways to make the heats exciting and IMO failed miserably

Back to the old days of a straight final??

I would of liked to see something along the lines of all 30 guys do the same 4 events

Squat or Deadlift
Overhead
farmers/frame/yoke
Stones

top 10 go onto the final carrying over points (amended to 1-10 rather than 1-30)

But anyway its a TV show first and foremost I try not think of it as the pinnacle/showpiece of the sport
Cool

I really hope they haven't done away with the heats. They are the most exciting bit.

Also if they have what are they going to do about all the athletes who have already qualified through giants live.

Qualified athletes are -

M. Kieliszkowski
M. Licis,
A. Bishop,
L. Shahlaei,
T. Mitchell III
K. Faires,
J-F Caron,
M. Forsmark,
G. Hicks,
T. Stoltman,
L. Stoltman,

I would love to see something like:

Farmers (not thin handled frame!) 180kg/30m
Circus Dumbbell 110/130 reps*
Plane Pull
Hercules Hold
Stones 150, 170, 190, 210, 230

*format like Arnold’s log

These events would be great for Kiels, Licis and Shaw and not ideal for Thor so I think it would make for a really good show.

I love those events!

Kila would run away with it I feel. He could win 4/5 events.

Supposedly 25 athletes...heats across 3 days and final on the fourth day...all events. Unsure if it will be 5 or 6 events in the final.

3 days of heats then no rest into a 5 event 1 day final sounds brutal.
