J-F Caron of Canada fresh off another 5th place finish at Worlds Strongest Man ended the day tied with Jitse Kramer but won due to count back (event wins) with Kramer taking second for the second straight year. With his win Caron has qualified for the 2019 Arnold Classic in Ohio.

WATCH the recap

With two event wins in the Farmers walk and yoke carry Jerry Pritchett finished the day in third and is now the points leader in the Arnold World Series Wild card spot.

Rauno Heinla who is already qualified for the Arnold Classic almost pulled out the event win in the 180kg Axle clean and press but could not stabilize his rep long enough for the down call.

 

Johan Els continues to look incredible at Atlas Stones winning the 220kg/484lb stone with 4 reps.

105kg Worlds Strongest Man Andrew Clayton moved back up to the heavyweights for this contest and snagged two event wins, in the arm over arm pull and the axle press for reps for 6th place overall.
