It used to be September. Far better, then we don't have to wait as long until we see it.

Giants Live North America was yesterday. The heat and humidity (95 degrees Fahrenheit, 100% humidity) was definitely making it hard to competitors to hit PRs. Dimitar Savatinov withdrew from competition due to dehydration and cramping after the carry medley.

Competitors
Nick Best - USA
Mark Felix - Great Britain
Derek Devaughn - USA
Jerry Pritchett - USA
Bryan Benzel - USA
Robert Oberst - USA
Stan Carradine - USA
Dimitar Savatinov - USA/Bulgaria
Ben Thompson - Canada

Events
Max Log
Side Handle Car Deadlift (13" pick, 850lbs/385.5kgs in hand)
Yoke (900lbs/408kgs for 90'/27m)
Carry Medley (2 sandbags and 2 kegs, 250lbs/113kgs each for 45'/13.5m)
Frame Carry (800lbs/363kgs for 90'/27m)
Atlas Stones (5 stones, 275lbs-410lbs/125kgs-186kgs)

Unofficial Scores

Nick Best 40.5 pts.
Mark Felix 38.5 pts.
Derek Devaughn 38 pts.
Jerry Pritchett 37 pts.
Bryan Benzel 30 pts.
Robert Oberst 27.5 pts.
Stan Carradine 25 pts.
Dimitar Savatinov 21.5 pts.
Ben Thompson 7 pts.

Nick Best, Mark Felix and Derek Devaughn place for WSM. Felix already has an invite (or should) from top 10 placing last year as well as performances this year in other Giants Live shows so others could get invites from this show. I've heard that Robert Oberst was given an invite from this contest.

Why would they give oberst an invite when benzel finished ahead of him? Seems pointless having a Qualifier if they're just gonna invite oberst regardless of where he finished.

Yeh Oberst has posted he's qualified for wsm.

Must have been a good performance from Best to beat Felix, the oldest two competitors (I'm guessing?) coming top two, quality.
Best is a very likeable strongman

oberst is a disaster

200 log looks like a miracle for him these days

he did no lift on deadlift with car, Dimitar did 9

he has no place at WSM

Go Mark Felix, still smashing comps. The man never ages.
I can only think of 2 reasons for Oberst getting an invite 1, He is capable of 200+ log (but then so are a few others now) 2, He's quite high profile and recognised now because of things like the podcasts and the 'rivalry' vids with Eddie Hall.

Harsh if Oberset got a free pass while others above him did not... I like him, but he doesn't seem to be pushing on much it seems?

So a bit more information coming out.

Loz has said WSM will be in "about a month". Eddie has also said today that the final events suit him better. I'm surprised they have been released to the athletes so soon.

We also now know disappointingly no Z.
