I said: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.


So this was my guess a while back -

A few changes now we know Z won't be there. I think Brant has retired as well and I'm not sure where Lalas or Radzikowski are RE their injury problems.

I think Van Stadden will go instead and Moonen or Nagy will replace Z.

The other change is that the American Devaughen has qualified through Giants live. That means either Thigpen or Carusso will miss out I think.

Anyone got any news?

Hopefully benzel gets an invite after his good performance at giants live USA.

I also hope luke stoltman gets to compete and reckon he has a good chance of getting a spot having been one of the travelling reserves last year.

Has the winner of the amateur arnolds not generally been invited (possibly only as a reserve) in past years? Lysenko and scherr certainly were.

Both were reserves, yeah. Who did win amateur arnolds this year?

There are so many good strongman now that many will miss out. 30 places just isn't enough any more.

What about Mateusz Baron?
, lalas's brother, Vidas Blekaitis, Sean o'Hagen must be about ready to.

I'm sure there are loads I've forgot to, then there are all the guys that used to compete a few years ago and seem to have disappeared. What's happened to Poundstone, he's still relatively young compared to a lot of the guys.

Poundstone is fully retired and looking an average man. I think I recall hom saying he chose health and family as priority after some losses in Strongman lives.

Fair play to him. He won comps and nearly won WSM. He knew he wasn't going to beat the top guys anymore.

Fair play to the man. Genuine 330lb shredded and always one of my favourites to watch.

I think he could have done, but at the expense of his health.

I guess so. His injuries were piling up. He was a beast though.
