Interesting.

Shame that the prizes are so small, at a high-profile event.

BendtheBar 01-26-2012 12:13 PM

I would have thought sponsor cash would have brought in more than that for powerlifting, but what do I know.

SeventySeven 01-26-2012 12:14 PM

kind of insulting for the level of event.
Wonder what MR O gets

No abs, no money I guess...

I imagine strongman is quite substantial.

It is actually not that much either. WSM prize is small in relation to the coverage it gets.

Something nobody else brought up was the fact that some of the Raw money is less than the equipped. I think its due to the fact that some are on the main stage and others are not though.

I missed the Raw aspect.

More iron moved, more muscle added, more cash involved I guess.

not alot of money...makes you want to steer clear of those type of events and just do it for the love of the sport. There will never be a ton of money in PL simply because to the average person...its boring, and uneventful...lol (just my thoughts though) I would like to see PLers make a decent income busting their chops in the gym/platform!

BendtheBar 01-26-2012 03:36 PM

I'll tell you what though, watching a powerlifting meet is a lot of fun.
