    Holy moly! Surprising places

  • Ben

    Very shocked Z only pulled 420kg

  • JOE

    gutted Jenkins missed a podium finish

  • SCHWEINEFICKER

    420kg ??? maybe he wanted to save energy for the last event and had not to pull more for 2nd place in the Deadlift….it cant be that 420kg was a true max. for big z

  • JLA

    I know Terry had an injury on the DL – he can typically do that for reps. Also, I don’t know specifics, but apparently many competitors had food poisoning at one time or another. That said, Brian definitely earned back his crown this year!

  • BS

    Is it anyone who knows how much Shaw weighed in at this competition? and Z?
    Would be greatful for answers.

  • benjamin

    420 kg only? what a joke, Big Z can do far more better than that, and the result in the overhead medley event, its just outstanding, brian just cant match with big z!

  • neilung

    Gutted the big Z is the man. He will always be the strongest, but not the most athletic

  • neilung

    so lets get this right the big Z lost his title by 0.1 second???

  • Saxon

    he failed the same weight shaw lifted its on youtube. Z is past his prime now I believe.

  • Andrius Krestovas

    Where is a video with competition

  • Jrod

    No even if he would have beaten Brian in that event as long as Brian still got 3rd he still would have won the title

  • neilung

    Cheers.

    Brian is great at worlds strongest but the Big Z is the strongest man on the planet. Has over 80% record lifts. Shocked he didnt win the deadlift.
    Was he injured??

  • disqus_0AhJ1DBSjM

    Too many events favor the taller athletes; Fingal’s Fingers, Loading Race, Atlas Stones, Keg Toss. The apparatus should be adjustable to take this into account, or events chosen so that height difference doesn’t matter.

  • Dyl

    mariusz pudzianowski is still the greatest

  • Dyl

    mariusz pudzianowski always the best

  • Pam Crane

    I haven’t missed WSM since I can’t remember when! What saddens me now is the TV presentation of the events – too much repetition by the presenters, too much stating the obvious, too many ill-timed, inconsiderate and sometimes inane interviews immediately before and after the psyched-up and stressed competitors have taken part – all of this being precious time taken from the events themselves. I’m sure we once saw every competitor’s turn in every event, and I sorely miss this; also there used to be the full podium ceremony, which surely should be retained at the end of such a herculean battle for the Globe, as the programme’s proper climax. Please, TV producers and directors, lose the padding from WSM and give us back uncluttered, unedited, nail-biting competition!

    Just found out that WSM Mike Jenkins has died. That is so sad. Seemed like a really nice man as well as an incredible athlete.
