    Well, there isn't another major federation for them to go to, so what will they do? I cant see Pudge leaving though, he's probably making a fair bit of money.

    Anyway, the Dymek thing is a dispute with his national federation isn't it, not IFSA

    Dymek has set up a rival strongman organisation in Poland, ALL the top 15 polish competitors, including Pudz have signed up. Also the major sponsors of strongman in Poland, and the TV companies are rumoured to be backing Dymek. The IFSA have written to Pudz threatening him with a ban if he competes with Dymek - so now we just need to see if they will carry out their threat and ban him. For more info see:

    About the bans.

    The most current info.

    Glenn Ross was kicked out of the IFSA for refusing to pay various fees in order to organise contests. He also is rumoured to be in the process of setting up a series of strongman events in the UK and Ireland.

    Don't forget Jill Mills. She's the strongest woman in the world by far, but she won't ever compete in an IFSA comp again.

    I don't know why this happened (nearly two years ago now). I heard that it was arguments with old Mr Edmunds - as usual!

    Jill Mills quit because Dougie changed the rules at the last minute and told Jill she needed to qualify for WSW despite being the reigning champ. Apparently the IFSA felt that she needed to "prove her fitness". This was shoortly after Jill Mills won a National Powerlifting competition - so she had hardly been sat on her arse eating donuts all year....

    Edmunds has liked the fact of getting his own way for too long now. Dymek was suspended because he ran a show without IFSA's say so i.e. they didnt get the money for it so he was booted out.

    from the sound of things the comp to win these days is the Arnold classic or the gnc show of strength

    the Arnold show 1st prize is $50,000 and a cadillac escalade which are worth another $50,000 or so.

    what is the prize money for wsm?
