2019 ASA Nationals – Final Places

The winners have qualified for the 2019 Official Strongman Games in Daytona Beach, Florida or the Cerberus USA presents Invader Coffee USS Pro Women’s Worlds 2019 depending on class availability. Your invitations to these competitions, as well as your $200 (thanks to the Australian Strongman Alliance and Valhalla Strength – South Brisbane) will be organised over the coming weeks.

A huge thankyou to our amazing event team. These guys moved tens of thousands of kilos of weights, or crunched hundreds of numbers flawlessly all weekend. Most were there for over 12 hours on Saturday and 10 on Sunday, which are huge weekends.

Thankyou to Frank Moravcik and James Alpen for putting on some awesome adaptive strongman demonstrations all weekend. Frank flew all the way down from Townsville just to do these demonstrations, which just shows how passionate he is about building this side of the sport. We hope to see a full division of athletes next year!

A huge thankyou to everybody who came down, shared our videos and cheered for the athletes. There was an absolutely packed spectator area for most of the weekend, and I know how beneficial this can be for the athletes for some really tough events. On a quick count, there was at least 150 spectators for most events, and we drew the biggest crowd for any ‘sideshow’ over the weekend.

Now, on to our sponsors. This was the second year Cerberus Strength Australia have been on board and we couldn’t be more pleased with their support – even if the competitors weren’t all a fan of the very tough sandbag/wheelbarrow event 😅 It was great to see a large majority of the athletes using Cerberus equipment, and shows that the community is proud to support the companies supporting our sport.

Zupps Mt Gravatt Holden & HSV, a huge thankyou for two brand new Holden Astra’s for the car deadlift. Having matching cars allowed to run the event head to head on the same class, making for some epic battles between athletes.

THS Nutrition, although you guys jumped on board with relatively short notice, we couldn’t be more thankful for your support. Keeping competitors and the event team hydrated caffeinated and hydrated, along with great prize bags for the winners is a massive benefit to the competition. Hope to see you guys back again next time!

To Mark from BodyWorx Functional Therapies, we can’t thank you enough for being all there weekend helping athletes stay in top shape for the competition. I know how much you were appreciated!

A final thanks to the Mount Gravatt Show Society and Showgrounds for giving us such a great opportunity to run an event like this. Although they might have been a bit hesitant about giving us the biggest area for any sideshow over the weekend, I heard from their entire Show Society board how great the spectacle of strongman and strongwoman is. We’ll be back for sure!

Our next Australian Strongman Alliance sanctioned competition, and the first QLD qualifier for the 2020 Australian Strongman Alliance Nationals will be the 2019 Brisbane’s Strongest Man and Woman in November. Entries open 07/09, with events already announced.
