Monster lifters from all over the world are heading to Australia to compete in Big Dogs 3 on the 14th Oct 1om local time for one of the biggest prize pools in powerlifting with $50,000 total on the line (split 1st - 22k, 2nd - 12k etc.)
No wilks and no weight classes. Biggest total takes home the prize.
Competing on the day are the likes of Eric Lilliebridge, Andrey Malanichev (No.1 Highest Total All Time), Petr Petras (Tied No. 2 highest total), Shawn Doyle, Daniel Bell, Odell Manuel, Brandon Allen and others.
Malanichev is always a favourite but having recently turned in a poor performance, at least by his lofty standards at the WRP World Powerlifting Championships, its hard to know what to expect.
Eric Lilliebridge is smashing big numbers in training and for the first time in a while has had an injury free prep so we can expect to see the 140/308er compete with the SHWs and beat them.
Petras is a less known name abroad despite having the tied 2nd highest total of all time. That was years ago tho so if he has been training since there’s no telling where he’ll be at. In the past issues with flying and not speaking any English but this time around he is able to come down to Oz and fight it out with the Big Dogs.
I can’t call the winner with any confidence (Malanichev because I’m a fan) but it’ll make for great viewing via livestream at http://proraw.pl/
