    Its a problem. What do you count? Where anything goes (Eddie Hall)? Where you deadlift in a powerlifting comp but only do the deadlift (Bennie Magnusson)? Where you deadlift as part as a proper powerlifting comp (Ed Coen)? Or you deadlift without a suit and get drug tested after (Brad Gillingham)?

    I guess its not a lot different from saying your protein powder is "100% pure" or that gym lifts count.

    get over it, it is a legitimate strongman event; I did not know powerlifting ha a monopoly on how exercises are conducted.

    Which is why it should be prefixed as a strongman deadlift. I enjoy watching strongman, but using straps and hitching is not the same as a powerlifting deadlift.
