    there were only 7 competitors, but it was pretty good still. They had the log press (winner did 260lbs), the axle deadlift (400lbs - the winner got 23 reps in under 2 minutes), the farmers walk (270lbs in each hand, winner stopped after 160ft), the tire flip (770lb tire - winner flipped it 7 times i think) and then a meddly (300lb shield carry, lift a 160lb chain on top of a 45 gallon drum, load 7 full kegs into the back on an escalade and then push the truck 80 ft). this guy won all the events except the log press...

    it's hard to tell from the pic, but he is 6'5" and 280lbs. he's a bouncer at a local club. Overall I thought it was decent but I'm not sure how these weights stack up against other strongman contests

    they said next year they were going to include a lightweight division (200lbs and under) and a womans division. At the start of the show they asked if anyone want to compete and they would outfit them with a belt and what not. No one did though.
