Nationals athletes are eligible to win both the 2022 ASA Nationals and the MVM Classic Qualifier
- Running simultaneously alongside the Open Men class at the 2022 Australian Strongman Alliance Nationals, the Magnus ver Magnusson Classic Qualifier will be open to 6 Open Male competitors who nominate to compete and receive an invitation, but invited athletes to the MVM Classic Qualifier are ineligible to win Nationals. Invited athletes are not required to be ASA members, however there is an additional charge for competing – this additional money will become the prize pool that will go directly towards the competition and travel costs for the winner of the MVM Classic Qualifier to attend.
