2022 World’s Strongest Man: Day Three Qualifier Results
The third day of qualifiers featured two events — the stone off and wrecking ball hold. This is the final day of three qualifiers where competitors will earn points in hopes of making it through to the finals over the weekend.
Wrecking Ball Hold
The day began with athletes required to hold a bar with two wrecking balls on either side. This was a timed event as competitors held the bar up in the air without resting it using any body part. The weight of the behemoth was 228kg (500lbs).
For reference, Tom Stoltman and Mitchell Hooper are already qualified for the finals over the weekend and did not exert energy on this event.
