The 2019 World Deadlift Championships Coming Soon

The World’s Strongest Man 2019 is over but strongman doesn’t go into an offseason. We are going to see the next strongman even in the nearest future; it will take place at the SSE Arena in Wembley England.

On July 6, we are going to watch the 2019 Giants Live event which includes the World Deadlift Championships. Now everyone wonders whether anyone is going to repeat or even break Eddie Hall’s 500kg deadlift.

Hall seems to make impossible, and if someone will be able to pull 1,104 lbs (501kg), he will get a special $50,000 prize. Who is going to challenge himself? Check out below:

Benedikt Magnusson

Magnusson is considered to be the real king of the deadlift by many. In 2011, he pulled 1,014 lbs (kg) with just a belt. Recently he has claimed that he will pull 528 kg soon! In 2016, he almost pulled 500kg but failed eventually. But this was the closest to Hall’s deadlift. Let’s see if he manages to beat Hall’s record this year!

Jerry Pritchett

This guy pulled 1.025 lbs (465kg) pretty easily and done 1,029 lbs (467kg) on the Elephant Bar in the past. His attempt to pull 500kg failed though. The athlete from Arizona participated in other events this year and got some injuries. However, he is going to compete and show something incredible, too.

JF Caron

This strongman from Canada also is a successful “deadlifter”. He won the Deadlift Championship in 2017 and pulled 1,021 lbs (463kg) on the Elephant Bar. It would be difficult to reach 501 kg after just 463 but let’s not give up on him, too.

Vlad Alhazov

Alhazov moved 500kg but not in the deadlift though. He squatted 500kg with just a belt and knee wraps in 2018. He was recovering from major injuries too. And at that time, he attempted to squat 1,300 lbs (590kg) in his full equipment.

Some more information

Brian Shaw and Martins Licis are listed as participants, too. At the World’s Strongest Man, Shaw finished 5h while suffering from a torn muscle in his arm. Officially, it’s not known yet if he is going to compete due to his injury.

Licis is the winner of the WSM competition but he didn’t share his plans for further competitions yet.

The 2019 World Deadlift Championship event is one of five events that will be part of a WST 2020 qualifier. Larry Wheels, Iron Biby, Mateusz Kieliszkowski, Mark Felix, Laurence Shahlaei, Adam Bishop, Tom Stoltman, Luke Stoltman, Mikhail Shivlyakov, Rauno Heinla, Konstatine Janashia, and Nedzmin Ambeskovic are also listed in the field.

Ambeskovic is to participate in the Deadlift event only.
