From Grant’s post on pre-qualification from 2013:
In order to ensure a certain minimum level of strength in our open provincial qualifier, a pre-qualification system has been established. For athletes who have not previously made the OSM finals, they must supply video evidence of themselves deadlifting 585lbs on a standard bar from the floor and pressing/push pressing 250lbs on a standard bar (no elbow sleeves). Lifts can be verified by the OSA or by another athlete who has previously made the finals at the OSM and will vouch for the lifts. If lifts are filmed, a shot of the plates on the bar must be included.

…let the lifting begin!!!

Alright guys, I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting the announcement…Registration will begin on March 15th. Overall, the planning is going well and we are progressing as planned with the organizing of the event.

The registration fee is $100 and is non-refundable. You can register at anytime however, you're not guaranteed a spot if you wait and you must meet the minimum criteria outlined below for pre-qualification. I will be handling the registration on behalf of the Organizing Committee (Kyle, Brittany, and Tony). To register, please send your $100 payment (you pay any transfer fees) to me via the instructions below.

Registration:
 $100 (non-refundable) send payment to Luke Skaarup. To pay via EMT or PayPal send funds to lukeskaarup@hotmail.com For cash or cheques get in touch with me.
 Limit of Competitors: may limit to 24 athletes total
 Weight Classes: open and 105kg

As with past years, you must be able to complete two minimum lifts to ensure a base level of strength for your own safety: this includes a 250lbs overhead press and a 585lbs deadlift. The lifts must be video taped and posted online or vouched for by an athlete who has made day 2 at the OSM before.

The new element for 2014 will be a 105kg class that will run concurrently with the open class. Essentially, all athletes will be competing with the same weights and events and the scoring for the 105kg OSM title will be awarded based on the overall performance of all 105kg athletes afterwards. In the event that none of the 105kg competitors makes day 2, the title will be awarded based on the results from the five events completed on day 1.

All athletes who have pre-qualified can compete in Day 1 of Ontario's Strongest Man. The top twelve athletes from Day 1 will proceed to Day 2.

After the completion of Day 1, the points will be carried over to Day 2.

General
=======
- Athletes are to avoid using foul language as this is a family friendly event.
- Athletes are to protect themselves at all times.
- First aid, chiropractic and massage therapy care will be available to all athletes onsite.
- The order for the first event will be drawn from a hat at 11am on Day 1.
- The order for the second through eighth events will be reverse placing from the previous event. The order for the final event will be based on the overall placing.
- The referee’s call is final. Arguing calls, attempting to show video of an event, or trying to make a case for something different than was discussed in the rules meeting will not be tolerated.
- If the at any time, the athlete cannot conduct themselves professionally, they will forfeit their turn in the event or be asked to leave the contest.
- Any and all questions about the rules laid out herein are to be asked in advanced and clarified in the group meeting rules meeting Saturday at 11am at the event.

Scoring
=======
- Scoring- the number of points awarded in each event will be determined by the number of athletes completing in the contest.
- 1st place will receive the max points with each subsequent placing one point less.
- If an athlete is unable to do an event they will receive 0 points for that event.
-For repetitions, the max number of repetitions will receive the most points with the fewest number receiving the least.
- For timed events. The scoring will be the fastest to slowest completion time for the overall course, the time to completion of the last part of the medley, or by maximum distance. All timed events, will be rounded to the nearest 1/10th of a second to account for human error in time keeping. For example: 36.54s will be rounded to 36.5s, a time of 36.57s will be rounded to a time of 36.6s.
- In the case of ties in an event, the appropriate points for the tied athletes will be added and divided by the number of tied athletes. Example: 4 athletes tie for 4th place in a 10 athlete field during the log press event. Following this logic, each of these athletes will receive (7+6+5+4)/4 = 5.5 points for the log press event.
-In the event of a tie in the final placings, the Countback method of scoring will be used to award trophies and prize money. Where the athlete with the most 1st places scores better (or 2nds…etc if # of 1sts is tied).

Event Rules

Day 1- All Competitors

1- Farmer’s Walk- 350lbs per hand x 100ft. Straight run. Head to head, 75s. ====================================

- Upon signal from the athletes that they are ready... Referee will give a verbal command of "set" and “go”. The time will then start.
- Unlimited drops. The athlete may lift the farmer’s implements as many times as required to complete the course.
- The implements will be set up with the front of the implement behind the starting line, meaning that both implements need to have the front end cross the line only to stop the time.
-Time stops at 75s or when the front end of the implements cross the finish line, whatever comes first.
-If the athlete does not finish the course, a measurement will be taken from the front of the implements to the starting line.

- A successful press is head through, elbows and knees locked out. No double dipping will be allowed.
-“Rayner Rule”- the athlete must fully lock out the press and hold for a full second at which time the referee will signal via hand or verbal cue that the lift was “good”. Should the athlete not wait for the referee’s command at the lockout stage, the rep will not count.
-After each successful lift as determined by the referee, the athlete shall attempt to press the implement again.
-The winner will be the athlete who completes the most successful lifts within the time limit.

-For shorter athletes: for all attempts, the athlete must be able to fully lift the entire apparatus off of the ground to achieve a lockout. If due to their stance, bar placement in their hand or their footwear, they cannot achieve lockout, then the onus will be on the athlete to adjust. They can do this by adjusting their stance, footwear, hand positioning, or by using the boards or mats provided to complete a successful lift. All adjustments must be made within their 60s attempt.

The athlete order for each weight will remain the same as defined on the minimum lift of 650lbs. An athlete can skip an attempt at one weight and will stay in the same order for the next weight that they choose to lift.
-Expected weight intervals- 650, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950, 1000, 1050, and 1100…etc.
- Placing's are determined by the highest weight lifted. The number of successful lifts will not factor into the placings.

- Once the athletes have completed the carry, they proceed to drag the truck on their own time attempt to complete the course.
-Time stops when the drag implement crosses the line, should they fail to finish a measurement will be taken from the back of the truck (referee or helpers to mark when time stops).
- There will be no time intervals, if the athlete fails to drag the truck, they will get credit for the number of implements loaded into the truck only.
- Tacky is not allowed

- Once in the ready position, the referee will blow the whistle or give a verbal command to start the event and the time will begin.
- The tires will be laying flat; once the athlete starts they’ll proceed to complete the course. Each tire must be flipped three times.
- the athlete will not flip the tire in a manner to cause the tire to do a saucer role to gain distance and therefore less flips
- Completion of the course will be when the final flip of the tire is completed.
- Placing’s will be determined by the fastest time to the slowest time for completion of the course followed by the number of total flips completed within the time limit should the athlete fail to complete the course. Split times will not be taken for each flip.

- The Referee will give a visual signal, hand being lowered, along with a verbal "Good Lift" at which time the athlete will lower the implement "UNDER CONTROL" and move on to the next implement of their choice until time has expired or they have finished the course.
- Failing to lower the implement "UNDER CONTROL" will terminate the event and the last repetition completed successfully will be the athletes result.
- Definition of UNDER CONTROL - Control will be in a two stage lowering chest then down and finished on the supports. Specifically, with the log, it must be lowered under control and placed on the supports. If the implements are thrown and not lowered under control, their turn will terminate. Care must be paid to the implements such that they are not damaged during the competition.
-Soft elbow sleeves are permitted during this event such as Rhebands but not the elastic Inzer type.

8- Car Squat Event- 700lbs for reps. Suits and knee wraps allowed. 60s each attempt.

This will be done with shoes off, feet on line and hip joint below the knee joint with the apparatus on the ground to ensure fairness. Attention will be paid to the athletes set up, wide or narrow. You will have to squat how you set up when setting heights.
- If the lowest setting on the height for the apparatus does not allow the athlete to reach the parallel position in the squat then a platform will be provided for them to squat on, with the height set accordingly.
- Once the athlete has been introduced they are to take their position in the apparatus facing away from the vehicle.
- Squat suits, power briefs, knee wraps, and knee sleeves are allowed.

- Upon signal from the athletes they are ready... Referee will give a verbal command of "set" and the whistle will blow, starting the time.
-The athletes will proceed to load each stone, in ascending order, onto the platform within the allotted time.
- There will be 5 time intervals with time being noted for each successful stone loaded. The event winner will be the athlete who loads the most implements in the shortest amount of time. Should an athlete fail to complete the event, their time will be that of their last successfully loaded stone.
