cant argue with the performance - a deserving winner. a good personality to have at the fore too.

cant underestimate toms achievement either. beats shaw and one more point and he wouldve beat caron out of 4th on countback. lots of years ahead of him to improve on that too.

Yeah but i dont see licis losing 5pts with 9 people in the final left. He will 100% be in the top 5
I see tom winning the stones

thats why I said both ways. however, if kila wins he only needs 4pts difference as he will get it on countback. unlikely but possible with all the great stone lifters there.

I said:the other spreadsheet says 4pt lead.

they changed it. it is 5pts.

advantage licis but there are a lot of good stone lifters in there that could spoil someones day one way or the other.

hold points are wrong on the Bjorheim one. luke and kilas scores are switched.

if kila wins stones and three others beat licis, kila wins..I think. possible?

the thing is when you start meddling with things as tv shows do, not only does it ruin it as a sporting spectacle, it makes it worse as a tv show too. case in point, one of the best athletes in the field not making the final.

although it is a tv show, it needs to take the viewers with it as a sporting contest. if you mess with rules and fair play too much they will catch on and switch off. something which will be accelerated in an age where people communicate online and dont have to be spoon fed whatever is on the tele.

'shows' only work if you keep up the illusion and all the social media comments slamming the comp suggest it might be slipping.

cant understand how something like that wasnt spotted. surely it would be obvious!
» WSM 2019 (Go to post)16-06-2019 @ 20:04 
and whether it comes out or not it is still a problem. a comp claiming to be the pinnacle of a sport should not be making f**k ups like this!

Only a problem if an athlete comes out and says they were instructed on order. If not thats an easy one to sweep under the rug for the tv coverage.

there is a vid of bish saying just this. hes talking to thor complaining about it whilst being recorded. its on Julian Howards fb page.

it seems that they were given a specific order for the implements in the press medley. but then some athletes went out of order and they just let it slide.

if true, and vids seem to confirm, this comp is turning out to be a proper s**t show.

at this point, the title wsm seems to be the only thing keeping this comp as the blue ribbon event of the sport.

is the deadlift hold straps or no?

loading will be interesting - lots of quick athletes in there.

imagine if Kristiansen had beaten Caron after coming effectively last in every single event.
