Individual and team expectations for Thursday’s rest day were dashed when the previous day’s weather forced the event to spill over into the next day. As such, Day 2 is crucial for athletes who give their all in competition and have been dubbed “the strongest man on earth”.

The “Shuttle to Overhead” event is a Day 2 story and asks participants to run increasing distances (400m, 600m, 800m) followed by maximum possible repetitions with clean and jerk (300 lbs for men and 200 lbs for women) in three rounds under challenge.
Jeffrey Adler had a great 100 to move up to 6th after 19 reps on the Rogue Fitness block, while Patrick Vellner struggled to get his reps counted when it mattered most. But third in the Challenger (16 times), Australian Ricky Garard maintained a clear overall lead with 461 points at the end of Day 2.
