The events have been selected for the World Alternative Games in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales (see below); easier ones for the First-timers, and tough events, including Steel bar snapping, for the Pro men. This should be a good spectator event, and the athletes can sign the snapped steel pieces at the end and give them to the spectators, which could be well received. We added an 83k class for the Pro’s which will be good for the smaller men.

Events:
First-timers (3 events)
1. Half a Penny – Hold
2. Shallow Hub – Hold
3. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold

Women (3 events)
1. Half a Penny – Hold
2. Two Hands Pinch Lift – Hold
3. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold

Pro Men Open class (5 events)
1. Stub Lift
2. Two Hands Pinch Lift – Hold
3. Adjustable Thick bar – Hold
4. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold
5. Braced snapping Steel Bar

Pro Men 83k class (5 events)
Same as Pro Men Open.

Classes: Pro Men Open and 83k, Women and First-timers classes.
