Here’s how things shaped up at the top, by event:

• Laurence Shahlaei kicked things off with a victory in the Super Yoke.
• Nick Best took the Shield Carry to another level.
• Brian Shaw (who had finished second in the first two events) annihilated the field on the Farmer’s Walk.
• Brian Shaw must have decided that finishing first is better than second, because he also won the next event, the log lift.*
• Nick Best once again proved his name on the Axle deadlift (Brian Shaw came in second).
• Brian Shaw smoked the field on the Stones of Strength.
