Online Qualifier for nationals

Update

 

As everyone knows, the unprecedented health pandemic has put a major pause on strongman competitions this year. Many shows have been cancelled or postponed, and many athletes that intended to qualify for Nationals 2020 have not had an opportunity to qualify. With that in mind, we’re going to provide athletes that opportunity with Strongman Corporations first ever Online Qualifier for Nationals 2020.

Along with our state reps we have come up with the events and weights below:
