Event 6: Atlas Stones

Time cap: 13 ½ minutes (9 x 90 second intervals)

Score: Points

The team is split into three M/F pairs, the pairs work in 90 second intervals. Each 90 second interval starts by both athletes completing one up & over. Each athlete scores 3 points for unassisted and 1 point for assisted up & over.  The athletes must not touch the side beams (this will be a no rep). Shorter athletes can be assisted, for an unassisted up & over rep the athlete must show dead hang with full extension first. Once both athletes are over the beam they advance to the atlas stones. The pair completes three (3) synchro lifts on the lightest ball (42kg/66kg), then two (2) synchro lifts on the second heaviest ball (52kg/77kg), and finally one (1) synchro lift on the heaviest ball (66kg/97kg). At 90 seconds the pair rotates.

The lightest stone is worth 1 point per synchro lift. The second stone is worth 2 points per synchro lift. The heaviest ball is worth 5 points per synchro lifts. The athletes must show full extension, with the atlas stone on both athletes’ shoulders at the same time. The stones must be dropped in front. If the pair completes the 6 reps with time left from 90 secs they can go back to the the lightest stone. At 90 seconds, the athletes tags the next pair.

Once each pair has gone three times (at 13:30 minutes) the team proceeds straight to the shoreline pens for Event 7, the team paddleboard race. At the shoreline the team picks up a Red Paddle Co Ride XL paddle board and six paddles. The team completes a paddleboard lap around a marked course, their time is logged when the board is back in its starting position with all six paddles on the board.


Event 8: Tyre Flip

Time cap: 12 minutes

Score: reps

Tie break: time after the second pair has returned over the baseline

The team splits into three pairs. On GO the first pair flips the tyre down the lane to the marker. At the marker the pair completes 10 burpee tyre jump throughs. The burpees have to be completed two at a time, two footed take off and landing, facing the crowd. The pair can split the burpees between them. After 10 burpee jump throughs, the pair runs to the sea, turns to face the crowd, and holding hands completes a sea submerge. Once they get a thumbs up from the judge, they can return to the tyre, where they complete another 10 burpee jump throughs, and flip the tyre to the far end of the lane. The pair then runs back to the baseline and tags the next pair. Once all three pairs have gone, the team completes as many shoulder to overhead reps with the tyre in remaining time, three athletes working at a time. The trio can swap any number of athletes on the tyre, but the tyre must go back to the ground at every change. Each STOH rep must have full lockout, short athletes can lose contact of the tyre at the top of the tyre, taller athletes can have a wide stance.

Event 9: Sandworm

Time cap: 12 minutes

Score: reps


18 sandworm ground to overhead reps

9 rope climbs

On GO the team completes 18 ground to overhead reps with the sandworm. The worm weighs approximately 150kg. The rep is counted when the worm is on the opposite shoulder, and all six athletes are standing with hips and knees locked out. The worm must be dropped to shoulder from overhead first before dropping to the ground. After 18 worm GTOH reps, the team completes 9 rope climbs. The athletes can go in any order, not everyone must complete a rope climb. The rope climb rep is counted with a full palm contact on the top beam. The athlete must show control on the descent. The non-climbing members must remain outside of the rig.
