The Official Strongman Games are set for mid-December with seven World's Strongest titles on the line and in a process new to the world of strongman, the main way to qualify is through an online competition. The online qualifier will launch in the next few weeks, but we now have details on all three events involved.
Event 1: Deadlift Total Tonnage

For Event 2, the athletes will set a 3RM log press. They can use a log anywhere from 8"-12" and will clean the log once then press it three times to get a score. Just like Event 1, you can submit an old video as long as it's within the last six months.
Event 3: The Farmer's Walk
The final event in the Official Strongman Games online qualifier is a classic Farmer's Walk for weight 50' out and 50' back.
