Info from a competitor.

Truckpull just over.
Something is wrong, first 2 did not start it. Nick is good in truck pull and did not get it started. I did it half the way, it had the brake on or something, first time that I don’t finish a truck pull.
Then Lauri who is not good at truck pull did it almost all the way.
Next group had the same problem, the lightest competitor ran with it hehe.

Update 18.08:

Per Gunnar reports that Misha is a little concerned because he has some pain in his left pecs.

Video of Hafthor winning the loading race.

    What a goof…

    Misha’s awesome.

    • Alex

      Yeah Jay Nera met him in Russia and he was drunk as hell. Apparently he tried to knock his and some other dudes head together in this bar then got really pissed off and was like “AAAGGGH RUSSIA” and flipped this massive wooden table upside down like he was doing a power clean

      • Igor

        Mikhail doesn’t drink.

        • biglifter

          you sure about that?

          Travis Ortmayer had a QA on bodybuilding.com and all indication was misha partied big and that when the strongman went out they would go through a shitload of liquor. Him and misha are close friends also and misha is the godfather of his child. He wouldn’t go into specifics though.

  • biglifter

    Brian has this in the bag no doubt. He would have won stones in qualifier also yet he slipped and still came in a close second. He seems unstoppable right now. The deadlift should be easy for him also since he was pulling near 1k in his prep. Circus bell Z might win but shaw is a strong one handed presser.

    • Magneto

      Big Z pretty much needs to win all three remaining disciplines to defend his title. Shaw is looking really strong. Plus, nice perfomance from Terry so far after his troubles last year. But – what the f*** happened in the Frame Carry. Anybody got info on that?
