The Static Monsters
The Static Monsters was put together as a small Strongman Style Push/Pull competition in November 2015 by Strongman Gold Coast and Coco’s Gym. With the Log Lift and the Axle Deadlift being iconic strength sports events and also being well known and practiced among strongman athletes, it was the perfect fit to get people to have a go. The competition was then opened up to allow more people to be able to compete against eachother under the same rules and conditions. Year two we had 9 events across 3 countries.
October 28 and 29, 2017 saw 29 events happen across 9 countries with a total of 397 competitors. This meant that for both consecutive years the event has more than tripled in size by both events and competitor numbers. Going on the same path we could see over 1400 competitors from 80 plus events by the end of 2018. Also added to the Static Monsters group of events for 2017 was The Static Monsters World Championships. Competitors from around the world that placed in the top ten of their weight class would qualify (2017 Monster totals are Here (Women) and Here (Men). On May 20th 2018, competitors from 10 countries in 8 weight classes came to the Gold Coast Arts Centre for the biggest Log and Deadlift competition to ever be held.
The Static Monsters is now the biggest strongman event of its kind in the world and will continue to grow. Static Monsters gives new athletes the opportunity to try competing for the first time without the barrier of having to learn too many events as well as offering experienced athletes some goals to compete for and the opportunity to compete against the best athletes in the world all under the same conditions and rules despite being across the world.
We look forward to seeing this event grow and create opportunities for event organisers and strength sports enthusiasts for years to come.
