Odd that a squat and deadlift would both be in the finals but if so this is the most static WSM in recent history.


Could this be Eddie's year? I feel like that could definitely work in his favor.

Personally, I'm rooting for Z to take the throne back and finally match Pudz record.



The events are about as favorable as possible for Eddie but I still see Shaw winning.

Hello everyone,
I am new here but i would love to know, if anyone is making a spreadsheet for this year's WSM like mattis did last year. Would be awesome because I love following the outcome of the competition in pretty much realtime.

Greetings from Austria,
Michi

Updated results here http://startingstrongman.com/2017/05/20/2017-worlds-strongest-man-news-results/

I'll start posting some more quick bits here as well.

Injuries Mark Felix tweaked his shoulder in the log and is carrying on but I believe skipped the fingers

Loz has a calf tweak after truck pull (same as was hurt on frame last year) but isn't too bad hopefully.

WSM Day 2 thoughts.
Bryan Benzel is NO alternate
You can't shoulder Fingal Fingers
Licis is a squat machine
Terry Hollands looks in fantastic shape
Adding pads to the squat stands was a GREAT idea
Eddie Hall and Thor (supposedly) both got the truck pull in 35 seconds.
Group 3 is still very close.

Injury Updates

Shahlaei calf
Felix (Bicep on Log)
Licis (Hand on carry/drag)
Tom Stoltman (retired)
