Mikeneto said:Agree with the above. He will be the heaviest which is an advantage in squats. Also on that squat video he mentions wearing a suit.

Would be interesting to see which competitors will be wearing a suit.


Suits are for pussies! I'm only saying that cause I can't get on with mine haha

everyone thought he would be crap on the log at Arnolds and then he hits 2 reps with 200k.

No possible way he's not been doing his squats, he will be better than people think.

I totally agree Brian trains the events more specifically than any other guys. If there's a new bit of kit he will get something made to match, everything is precision planned. He trains the events exactly as they will be so no way he would leave that stone unturned

Terry I think I seen a video on youtube with brian squatting on a big axle probably to be similar to the giant globes. I think he will suprise people with his squat.

It's probably the hardest WSM to predict a winner or even top 3 for that matter. I know everyone says the events suit Z, but I'm sure a few of you guys will feel the same in most of the events!

I was wondering if it having been announced for march at such short notice will have an impact on how some guys perform as their prep might not be at the same level as it would have been had wsm been at its usual time.

Hoping to see thor and the British lads do well though, as others have said a lot of it could come down to how well the likes of brian and thor squat as we haven't seen them do too much squatting.

Anyone know what the groups are yet? Surely they must be decided by now with it starting on Saturday?

Looked over the events again. Going to say top 6 be..

1st - shaw
2nd - z
3rd - terry
4th - thor
5th - burke
6th - pritchett

Edit - changed my mind again, such a hard one to call! Going to say tel for 3rd as despite maybe not doing so good in keg toss i think he wins truck pull and thor gets dead last in squat or near as. Will be very close.

Shaw is always prepared . He will squat good , but if Edd and Loz make the final I see him drop to 4-5 place on the squat , of coure Z will win it .
For the overall result Z , Shaw and Terry or Thor in that order .
Good luck Terry . Stay healthy .

I initially had z for win but if you think about it, with terry clearly in top form and with a 270k front squat, i can see him putting z into 4th on stones, plus on loading, you know shaw is going to be quick training with burke, so i think he drops points on that too and terry could again pip him as well. I think it will be very close but i think shaw wins even though z will more than likelt win the squat.
