2023 SMWC – Qualifying

Share post:

To Qualify and compete:

  • The top ten Monster Totals from each of the 10 classes (plus Adaptive classes) will receive invitations to compete (for 2023 the 1 arm seated and Special classes will not have a world championships for 2023)
  • You have to compete in the weight class you qualified in. Due to the large number of athletes waiting for a spot in each weight class, we can not allow you to move weight classes.
  • If someone does not take up their invitation to compete, the next person in the rankings will be given the offer. So after the first person says no to their invitation, the person that came 11th in that class will then receive the invitation to bring the numbers back up to 10 per weight class. This will continue down the rankings until all ten spots are filled for each of the 10 weight classes. This also requires you to be fair to those coming in the rankings after you. If you don’t plan on taking your spot, you need to let us know so that we can give the next athlete in line as much time as possible to plan their entry to the competition.
  • The top 3 from each weight class from the 2022 World Championships have also qualified and will have spots held for them at the 2022 World Championships. This gives a potential of 13 spots for each of the weight classes.
  • There will be a fee to participate in the Static Monsters World Championships, outlined further down this page.
  • There is no currently confirmed prize money for the event . If sufficient sponsorship of the event is to happen then prize money will be allocated to the classes.
