2022 WSM Competitor Withdrawals

While 30 men qualified to enter this year’s WSM, unexpected scenarios could occur. Here’s a list of the competitors who have withdrawn from the contest.

How Strongman is Scored

Scoring points in competitive strongman events relates to the overall field of competitors. First place can earn as many points as there are competitors, and points descend accordingly.

In the Qualifying stage, you can earn a maximum of six points because there are six athletes in each group. First place gets six points; second gets five, and so on. In the Finals, there will be 10 competitors in total, so first place earns 10 points; second gets nine; third gets eight; and so on.

In the event of any tied scores, points are split evenly. If two athletes tie for a second, you would add up the second and third place points and divide by two. For example, in the WSM Finals, if two athletes tie for second place, they would each earn 8.5 points (nine plus eight divided by two).
