      Ok thank you, as soon as you or anyone hears, please could you post it. I am from the UK Wales, but, I got favertes from other parts of the World, I would love Kieliszkowski, to win, so strong at a young age, just hope he gets his dead lift up, and he's going to beat T. and B. He should ask Eddie for some help.

          So is it just Graham who goes to the WSM ???

          Did you see the way Kieliszkowski lifted that log on Sunday ??? And the way he put that 400 pound stone on his shoulder 5 times, was then surprised his rival matched him.

            The Top 5 at BSM get invites, but Loz & Bish had already qualified through previous Giant's Live contests.

            They might give a wildcard to one or two more Brits, Mark Felix is retiring this year, whether he'll get to bow out at WSM 19 has yet to be answered, Terry Hollands was a bit behind the top 5, I heard he's changed his coach so he might not be ready for WSM.

            WSM is currently scheduled for late May/early June with date/venue to be confirmed.

            Phil Roberts unfortunately got a bad injury on the Atlas Stones, when his legs collapsed from under him when lifting the 4th stone, hopefully he can get back to 100% sooner rather than later.

            Yeah, seen Kieliszkowski's lift, incredible stuff, he made it look so easy, his deadlift cost him again in the end, it reminds me of Martin Muhr, the guy had everything but had a terrible overhead that cost him over and over again.

            Kieliszkowski's WSM hopes could come down to whether it's a deadlift or squat in the Finals.

              According to Julian Howard, WSM 2019 will be held in California - more info on that should come in the next few days. The contest should be held in late May/early June. I could thus speculate that dates would be May 25-28 for the heats, and June 1-2 for the final, but please these dates with a grain of salt.

                  Kalle Beck mentioned that Tachi Palace who sponsored the WSM 18 contest, have a casino in California, so it would make sense if (all if not part of) the competition is held there.

                      Wayne,

                      It's official now - Bradenton, Florida will host WSM 2019 from June 13-16. Yes, only four days, as it seems changes in the format are to come.

                        Interesting developments, appears to be the biggest shakeup since WSM 2004, that for me was the worst WSM I've ever watched.

                        The thing that separated WSM from other contests was the format so again it'll be interesting to see what this means in terms of number of athletes, number of events, elimination etc.

                          Ok, so it appears it's 25 athletes competing in heats over 3 days with a 1 day final.

                          Those who finished on the podium at Giant's Live are invited but it's up to them to accept.

                          Whether the heats & final is 5 or 6 events, that's going to be brutal for the athletes.

                                Heard that visa issues are holding up a couple of invites, reportedly Peyman Maheriorpheir & Rongo Keene. Again, just rumour.

                                  I didn't think Rongo Keene had been invited?

                                        There is a SCL contest in Holland scheduled for 15th June so it could be that Radzikowski will go there instead.
