It definitely appeared to be a conservative effort from where I was sat. Will it be the same weight at WSM ?
P.s. thankyou so much for your comp vest that you gave the little'un she was so pleased with it, she sat wearing it all day (lmao), shes shown it to everyone and wants to take it to school tomorrow too. Really very appreciated


Medley I believe. They'd have to go quite a bit heavier than yesterday as the big db pressers would smash it. I thought if I'd properly gone for it I'd run out of time before power and you can only do so many in a minute. I think there'd be too many split points then.

No problem at all

Will be interesting to see what he does with full prep. Also no grip event is also a loss for him. I just cannot imagine his squat being great.

I do think Thor can surprise a few and be up there for the title. His squat seems actually pretty good for a tall person. Truck pull, stones, keg toss are all great events. OH medley will be interesting, the results were strange last year, hopefully different equipment for it also.


And loading he is awesome at.

If it was that easy no one would turn up. They're probably the 3 favourites but that is far from a dead cert

Barring injuries that will be the top 3 I'd say, with the events in the final..

I think it's pretty clearly going to be pretty tight between Z, Shaw, Terry and Thor for the top 4. But I honestly think they could end up in any order.

There are 4 events that could quite easily be decided by seconds or even fractions of a second - loading, truck, kegs and stones. So I really think it could go any way between those 4.

I kind of wish kegs wasn't there though as it seems more of technique than a strength event to me.

Most exciting is the very real possibilty of 4 brits in the final! And we're going to smash it on the squats! We could maybe even have 4 of the top 5 squatters being from England, I reckon, with Lalas out and Misha still not 100%.

Are these still the final events or have they changed again?

Loading
Squat
Truck pull
Keg toss
Stones
Overhead medley

Based on these defo Terry, Z, Shaw and possibly Thor (depending how well he squats and weights in overhead medley). Gotta fancy Terry for loadign and truck pull. Z for keg toss, stones, sqaut and medley. Based on that can't really see Z not winning overall - would rather Terry won mind! Think it will be very close though.

Be awesome if Loz, Edd and Hixxy make the final as I think they would cause a bit of upset on those events especially squat! In fact it would be mega awesoem if all Brit lads got to final although that would be a tall order considering the Yanks and others!
