Results of the Old Time Strongman World Postal Competition

Report by I.A.W.A. President Al Myers:

The results for the FIRST EVER OTSM World Championship have finally been compiled.  I was so impressed with the participation in this Championship, with 5 women and 19 men competing. Also, lifters from Australia (8 lifters), the USA (11 lifters), England (4 lifters), and Wales (1 lifter) were part of this Championships. That indeed makes it a World event! I sure hope this continues as an annual IAWA Championship – and for those that entered this year will always go down in history as part of the inaugural class of OTSM IAWA lifters.  That’s something to be proud of!

Now for the BEST LIFTERS of the OTSM IAWA World Championship –

OVERALL BEST MENS LIFTER – Philippe Crisp, England
BEST WOMENS MASTER 45-49 LIFTER – Racheal Hin, Australia
BEST WOMENS MASTER 50-54 LIFTER – Monica Cook, Australia
BEST WOMENS MASTER 55-59 LIFTER – Sonya Becker, Australia
BEST MENS MASTER 45-49 LIFTER – Philippe Crisp, England
BEST MENS MASTER 50-54 LIFTER – Nick Swain, England
BEST MENS MASTER 60-64 LIFTER – Peter Phillips, Australia
BEST MENS MASTER 75-79 LIFTER – Martin Doolan, England
BEST MENS SENIOR 20-39 LIFTER – Braden Reddenbagh, USA
BEST WOMENS SENIOR 20-39 LIFTER – Kat Becker, Australia

I want to thank the host club/promoters  in each country that helped promote this year’s OTSM Worlds. This includes:

Australia – Lambda Academy with promoter John Mahon
England – promoters Nick Swain and Phil Crisp
USA – Dino Gym with promoter Al Myers
Wales – promoter Neil Keddy

Lastly, I want to thank my co-promoter for this event, John Mahon for all his help. John did alot of work to make this happen – organized the entry forms, collected the entries, and tabulated the results/scoresheets.

I’m very much looking forward to next year and the future of Oldtime Strongman in IAWA.

**World Champs – Important Announcement**

As many of you have been anticipating final details relating to this year’s world champs we have to advise that due to circumstances beyond our control we have to change the venue of this year’s competition. Our new venue will be Eastbourne Sports Park and the dates remain the same (6th&7th October), as do the lifts. I will be promoting this year’s event with Steve Gardner assisting. Full venue details, application form and information for visitors will be released in the next couple of days. This will be an exciting event and we are lucky to have such a great venue.

2018 World Postal Competition

A message from IAWA President Al Myers:

The IAWA World Postal Championships has been announced! It will still be the “Andy Goddard Memorial”.  Andy was a great friend and supporter of the IAWA and as long as I’m involved promoting the World Postal it will be done in Andy’s memory. As it has been the past few years, the lifts for this World Postal will be the first day lifts of the upcoming Worlds. Since Worlds has not officially been announced yet (with an official entry form) I am assuming the lifts on day one will the lifts passed at the World Council Meeting last fall. Read the the info sheet as it outlines the “rules of the competition”.   Send your results to me at Also, please send in the official entry form with your club results. If you have more club entries than on the entry form just include extra entry forms.
