News, results and thoughts on WSM 2016 all info will be posted here first

From Reddit

For newcomers, there is no livestream, online broadcast, live TV broadcast, or anything for WSM until whenever they feel like editing it and producing it. And no, I don't know why we bother.
SPOILERS BELOW

Please discuss WSM news and the heats here. Post good social media updaters, spreadsheets, or related media and I will add them to this main list.

Lots of injuries in squat :( at least 4 guys got hurt including Arsjo "ruptured groin"
I believe Bryan Benzel got hurt as well but not confirmed
Eben of Australia tore his calf yesterday on the truck pull

My Thoughts on Eddie Hall's performance

When people call Eddie Hall a professional deadlifter not a true strongman...
Hall is one of the best and most calculated strongmen in the world
He broke the deadlift record and pulled out of two comps this year but got more $ & press than any strongman outside of "the mountain" for doing so.
Not finishing Europe's & the Arnold were very well thought out and the right choice to make. It set him up to place where it is most important. (Worlds)
He got 4th at WSM last year and 3rd this year has won UK's and Britain's strongest multiple times now as well. He shows up when it counts.
Despite last in the frame carry (two dislocated fingers) he podiums
If he won the frame he'd be worlds strongest man right now...
I expect next year he will be much improved as he focuses solely on WSM 2017 and not deadlifting 500KG a feat no one will probably touch for a long time
