Individual Event Details: Strongman’s Fear

We saw a short video of Alex Parker carrying the Slater strongman logs earlier this week. Now, we have the details of the event.

During the athlete reception last night, Dave Castro revealed the Saturday morning event in the North Park venue.

60-ft. yoke carry + 60-ft. handstand walk
60-ft. farmers log carry + handstand walk
60-ft. sled drag
60-ft. yoke carry + 60-ft. handstand walk
60-ft. farmers log carry + handstand walk
60-ft. sled drag

*Athletes may carry the objects in any order they choose.
M 420-lb. yoke, 170-lb. logs, 265-lb. sled
F 300-lb. yoke, 120-lb. logs, 220-lb. sled

The unique twist on this is that the athletes choose the order they carry the objects.

With 240-feet of handstand walking it favors Katrin Davidsdottir. Davidsdottir won the handstand walk event last year by going unbroken down the entire soccer field in Carson. The question will be if she can take that advantage and carry it over to the other implements in this event.

Here is the demo video with Alex Parker.
