He has Burke, Belsak and Szcemanski (SP?) All are very good at moving events. I think Hall will make it but it is not a given.

On here,

I think it will come down to the truck pull and Kettle ball throw. Ed is lucky he has the Barbell and not the Dumbbell.

Thanks, well Ed will prob take the deadlift. The circus barbell sounds like the same setup that was in the WSM final in 2013. Burke did really well at that so despite Ed's overhead power Mike might take that one. I don't know too much about the other guys in that group but I'm sure Ed's the second-favourite to qualify after Burke??

moving events and double points on stones
belsak and burke are favourites in this group for me


With the events I'd favour Caruso above Hall as well tbh.

Group 1 is one of the hardest groups....

Its the only group with 3 finalists from the past 2 years

And he hardly has a history of easy groups

2013 he had Hollands who was 3rd in the final before injury and Wildouer
2012 he had Arsjo, Wildouer and Koklyaev
2011 he had Thor, Felix, Caron and Best
2010 he had Petursson who finished 4th in the final and Felix
2009 he had Big z who won, Felix, Petursson and Wildouer

I agree in 2014 he had an easy group. But before that Shaw has been in a group containing another athlete who made, or who would of made the top 6 in the final if not for injury, 4 times out of 5. The one time he didn't he was in a group with three other past and future finalists.

Hicks has put a pic up of bandaged foot saying he dropped a tyre on it.
