    Icon2 The 2018 World's Strongest Man - official thread with videos / photos and results!

    Hi guys,
    in this thread I will post all the results from the 2018 WSM, info about the events, qualifiers and videos / pics.
    If you have any info feel free to post it.

    Alright, so the 2018 Wold's Strongest Man will take place in Manila, Phillipines.
    Qualifiers: April 28 - May 01 in Manila, Philippines
    Finals: May 05 - 06 in Manila, Philippines

    These were the groups in the heats / qualifiers, and the top 2 in each group advanced in the finals. This year the "special rule" was that if the guy in the 3rd place beat the guy in the 2nd place in the last event aka the stones, then he would be the one to advance in the finals, no matter the point difference between 3rd vs 2nd.Pretty shitty rule if you ask me, but hey what do I know.

    Re: The 2018 World's Strongest Man - official thread with videos / photos and results!

    The qualified athletes for the finals are:

    Hafthor Bjornsson
    Matjaz Belsak
    Brian Shaw
    Johan Els
    Zydrunas Savickas
    Robert Oberst
    Martins Licis
    Jean-François Caron
    Mateusz Kieliszkowski
    Konstantine Janashia


    For the Finals they will have to go through the following events:

    Frame Carry
    Similar to Farmers Walk, but instead it is a "Frame" that is caarried for speed over a course. A Time is given for those that -
    finish and distance measured for those that do not finish the course in time. NOTE: this is the same event as Event 1 in the 2016 WSM Grand Final. (click on the link for the youtube video)

    Loading Race
    Items are to be carried and loaded down a course. Multiple items are to be included and as they are still to be finalised.
    However, example items that may include are Anchor, Barrels, Sacks, etc

    Vehicle Pull
    As per normal truck pull. In other words. Athletes use a "Harness and Rope" to pull the vehicle, and they achieve either a time or distance.

    Vehicle Deadlift
    Repetitions are done on a Deadlift frame which holds a vehicle. Most Deadlift repetitions wins in the time period.

    Overhead Max
    A simple "weight-lifting style" competition.
    Expect the lifting to be done on a standard Olympic Bar with clean and overhead rules being similar to max Axle. In other words - you can clean The bar in mulitple ways. And then press or jerk the bar to overhead. No use of belt allowed though.

    Expect the end weights to be "Axle Wheels", and then added weight will go on the ends. As per "last man standing style" of contests - There will be a set of rising weights to be chosen at the discretion of the Referee Team. Most weight lifted wins.

    Atlas Stones
    As normal - a series of Atlas stones that increase is weight are to be lifted as per normal- thus, it is a timed race
    head to head with normal points awared for placing.

    What's more remarkable are the devices and the weights used for the competition. That was the first time I've seen one of those. I liked the barrel device (one barrel falls after a successful lift). The participants are fantastic too. I was wondering how long did it take to have a body like theirs. Thanks for sharing.

    Re: The 2018 World's Strongest Man - official thread with videos / photos and results!

    To set one's mind into achieving one's dreams in becoming the World's Strongest Man is an unbelievable task. These men are wired with a whole different dimension, being able to pull of such insane tasks is absolutely crazy. I can remember when Mark Henry won the strongman contest at the Arnold Classic in Columbus some years back which led him to start using the name World's Strongest Man when he moved into wrestling.
