This may be premature... But what are your predictions? Will we see 500?

My prediction--

2-5 people will get 466kg
Certainly Hall & Benni, Shaw if he's competing (not sure if that's confirmed or not?) and possibly one or more of Hollands, Pritchett and Thor.

...and that'll be it
Hall & Benni will go straight for 500 and fail. No-one else will try heavier.

Nobody is pulling 500. I think around 470-472 will win. Even that is a great increase at this level.

My guess is they will keep noodling the bar until someone hits 500kg. Happy

Brian Shaw and Thor both do African Arnold's this weekend(I think).. Will be interesting how the deadlift goes there.

If Shaw looks 100% it will bode well for him maybe doing the comp.

Terry's day will arrive, a surprise 480kg from him will take the contest!

Terry has said he will pull 475.

Both Ed and Benni are gunning for 500.

So that is 3 very bold statements! Ed has said he has done 480 in training before too, so he is coming in with confidence.

Shaw can pull 450 plus (If he competes), as can Jerry P. I think a fully fit Loz could hit a new PB too. Thor surprised me last year with his pull, so I'd like to see him pull a bigger number this year.

I think we'll have a better idea when the increments are known. I think they might stop off at 455 this years to get a record number of people lifting 1000lb in a competition.

Ed will pull 500.

Hollands and shaw (if he competes) will go over 464.

Benni will pull 464 and yet somehow not end up in the top 3. What an absurd statement that is to type.

Depending on jumps thor could very possibly go over his 450 PB. He will also win the overall at Europes.

Nobody will pull 500.

4 lifters will pull in excess of current world record and 2 will be injured trying.

I hope I am proven wrong as I will be there myself and hope for something special!

I think. Ed, Benni and Jerry will get 464 or 466 if they count the Arnolds which they shouldnt. If they go for something 470-475 then I think Ed and Benni will both make it however if they jumps to 500 I think it wont budge for either of them. I don't think Shaw will compete and I don't think Thor will improve his PB unless its by a kg or so.

I can't see it either. it just seems crazy to think the same people (ed,benni) who've been eeking out small increases
since andy's 1000 pound pull 10 years ago, will be suddenly find 35kg on the day.

I'm sure it'll still be an amazing contest regardless, hopefully as amazing as your delightful new avatar.
