First day of the finals is over. For those that don’t know, this event has always gotten atrocious coverage and cannot be followed in real time. The USA gets a single TV viewing in December or January. Shaw is going for his 4th title which would tie him for 2nd of all time with Big Z, JPS, and Magnus.

Current standings are:

1.) Shaw @ 25

2.) Janeshia @ 23

3.) Bjornsson @ 22

4.) Hall @ 20- Tied for 1 in DL, Circus Barbell after last place in Frame Carry

Savickas’ absence is good for everybody, regardless of if the log press is in the finals or not.

Remaining events for tomorrow:

Plane pull, Kettlebell throw, Atlas stones.
