Format of Competition:
The Odd Haugen Southland Strongman Challenge will be contested over 5 Disciplines. Athletes’ order and pairing in the first Discipline is determined by reverse order of received entry, and announced at the Athletes’ Rules Meeting prior to the commencement of the contest. The order in the subsequent Disciplines shall be the reverse order of OVERALL standing (not previous Discipline). Ties in the overall standing shall be broken by finish in previous Discipline. If a Discipline is contested in pairs or groups, the “lane” assignments must be uniformly applied “odd” in left lane, “even” in right lane to the all pairs.
|Disciplines:||LW women||OPEN women||LW men||MW men||OPEN men|
|1) Farmers (timed w/turn)||120||150||180||220||250|
|2) Log clean and press for reps||110||150||180||230||260|
|3) MAS Combat||man-o-man||man-o-man||man-o-man||man-o-man||man-o-man|
|5) Axle Deadlift for Reps||250||300||400||450||550|
Timed Disciplines shall be hand timed, and distances shall be measured by standard measuring device. The score in a Discipline shall be determined by placement and based on the number of Athletes starting in the first Discipline of the contest. If an Athlete pass on a Discipline or fail to get a measurable result in a Discipline, he will receive zero (0) points (i.e. fails to get one repetition in a Discipline for maximum repetitions, fails to lift the opening weight in a max lift, etc.). The score for a placement shall remain the same through an entire competition (i.e. if the score for 1st place is 16 points in the first Discipline, it will remain 16 points in subsequent Disciplines even if the field of athletes has been reduced by attrition).
