This is my wild stab in the dark prediction of the line up.

Please feel free to correct if you know anything -

Hall
Felix
Shahlaei
Bishop
Hollands
Shaw
Pritchett
Thigpen
Best
Oberst
Caruso
Ostlund
Hanson
Brant
Schuen
Saviskas
Bjornnson
Caron
Shivlyakov
Savatinov
Zageris
Licis
Radzikowski
Kieliszkowski
Kobylarz
Szymanski
Belsak
Wildouer
Arsjo
Lalas

The depth of the field is now unbelievable. I reckon at least 25 of those will go in thinking they should be making the final.

I'd say all of them would be worth their place at wsm with the possible exception of hansen (although I know that they will want a Norwegian there as it's a big market for them so he'll get the nod).

I would expect that eben le roux will likely get the nod ahead of brant. We could also see lysenko and Luke Stoltman as they were the travelling reserves last year.

The standard of that field is unbelievable though as you don't look at many of those guys and think they're just there to make up numbers like you do some years.

When is Scotland's strongest man? I think Tom Stoltman might have the beating of his brother this year, could that see him travel as a reserve instead?

If you're citing him having done one contest in two years surely the same is true for Lalas?
Rather than thinking either one is a shoe in for a top 5 I see both guys as a bit of an unknown, although they both do easily have the potential to do well if on top form.


Lalas was third at the Arnold beating thor, ed etc..

Ive meet Terry once or twice over the years and found him to be a very enjoyable, humble fella. Not to mention he has some of, if not the best genes.
I have a feeling that this year he might shock the nay sayers and I secretly have been hoping he does.

Personally I really hope Terry does well.


Whatever happens, its going to be an enjoyable wsm this year. I also hope Lalas arrives injury free...would be good to see him on form..he would push the others on all the static events and blast the field open making the top 3 more uncertain than it already will be.

The last few years Terry has been doing WSM on about 12 weeks training. With far better preparation I'm hoping he does well. Then again I'm biased because he's my favourite.

It's still his only comp in two years. Although it was very impressive him getting on the podium at the Arnold I don't know how much that tells us about how he'll do at wsm given the difference between the two comps.

It's 25 June in Dumfries this year. I doubt if it will be used as a qualifier for wsm though.

i find it pretty problematic for strongman fututre the weights standard

there will hardly be Shaws and Savickas level atheletes anymore just because its hard for newcomers to build progressively through the years

now no time to build up
u come up at 150+ bodyweight, 400 deadlift, 200 loglift or better not compete
4-5 years max for an athlete at this level who starts from these numbers
after that injuries, high estrogen and no more pussy

I think that looked extremely easy.
He wrote that he will test his max next week.

Also seen a video today of Hicks absolutely pissing a 200 log. IMO definitely stronger than Eddie overhead even with a knackered back.
