To keep everything in check for our weight classes they will remain the same as those used by the Australian Strongman Alliance. (www.australianstrongmanalliance.com.au). Details they have laid out for their weight classes can be found directly in the below link:
NOTE: COMPETITORS MUST WEIGH IN “UNDER” THEIR WEIGHT CLASS AS IS IT LISTED “UNDER 90KG, UNDER 82.5KGS ETC”
FOR EXAMPLE: IF YOU WEIGH IN 90.0KGS YOU WILL BE LISTED AS UNDER 105KGS. IF YOU WEIGH IN AS 89.9KGS YOU WILL BE LISTED AS UNDER 90KGS. THE SAME GOES FOR POUNDS.
As the Static Monsters is an international event, we will set the weight classes in both Pounds and Kilograms:
under 52.5kg = under 115.5lbs (new for Worldwide 2020)
under 62.5kg = under 137.5lbs
under 72.5kg = under 159.5lbs
under 82.5kg = under 181.5lbs
under 70kgs = under 154lbs (new for Worldwide 2020)
under 80kg = under 176lbs
under 90kg = under 198lbs
under 105kg = under 231lbs
For athletes having to weigh in for the above categories. Weigh ins can start 24 hours before the competition time. Ie, if the competition starts at 9:00am on a day, then you can weigh in from 9:00am or after the day before, not any earlier. Athletes are welcome to weigh in on the day as well. Weigh ins are subjective to each individual event organiser based on their availability for weigh ins. Video weigh ins are not allowed.
Masters Class is set for anyone that turns 40 before the event. 2019’s cut off date is the 25th of October. A competitors birthdate will be required with their entry form for verification. Full details here:
Masters and Adaptive Athletes will compete within their Weight Classes. Their Masters and Adaptive rankings come separately as well. They will receive multiple rankings as a part of the Worldwide event then. For Example. A Male who weighs in at 89.9kgs but turns 40 before October 25th 2019, will get a rankings in both the Mens under 90kgs Class and in the Masters Class.
For the standing division, you must have a physical disability that prevents you from safely handling the weights in the open division and/or competing evenly against athletes without any disabilities. For the seated division, you need to either have a physical disability that requires you to use a wheelchair or you meet the physical criteria for the standing division but you choose to compete in a wheelchair. For instance, if you have a prosthetic leg, you may compete in either division, depending on how you feel the prosthetic limb will hold up. If you are competing in the seated division, all athletes will be using the same wheelchair for the events. For the neuro division, you must have cerebral palsy, spina bifida, MS, or some similar condition that impairs optimal neurological function at a high enough level to put you at a disadvantage going against someone with a fully functional nervous system.
