The 2022 Strengthlete Collective Clash On The Coast contest wrapped up today, April 24, 2022, at the Beach House Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The competition had some of the biggest names in strongman as judges. Nick Best was the head judge, while Maxime Boudreault and Evan Singleton watched over the events. Check out the full results and recap of the 2022 Clash On The Coast below.
This contest features some of the most recognizable strongmen and women in their respective weight classes. In the end, Isaac Maze won the U105 kg Strongman division, and Melissa Peacock won the U82 kg Strongwoman division.
This event was even more memorable because, for the first time in its history, the strongwoman’s prize pool was larger than the strongman’s. This goes to show that the women are starting to get more recognition for their hard work.
Both winners of the 2022 Clash On The Coast represented Canada. To make this competition even more memorable, the two winners are a couple, which might make them one of the strongest couples in the world.
The men’s division featured numerous incredible performances. Still, Isaac Maze’s consistency during this competition is what put him above the competition and earned him the win in the 2022 Clash on the Coast.
Matthew Mckeegan had a rough start in 11th place but overcame his obstacles and finished the competition in second. Making it one of the best comebacks in recent strongman history.
This was a special day for Samantha Belliveau because she started off the competition with a World Record in the Circus dumbbell event, with an impressive 183.9 lbs (83.4 kg) completed repetition. She continued her amazing performances in the shield carry event, finishing only behind Erin Walklet and Melissa Peacock.
The overall winner Melissa Peacock was able to earn herself a win in the third event by lifting the 200 lb sandbag up to her shoulder five times. She then deadlifted 450 lb (204 kg) for an impressive eleven repetitions to win the fourth event. This event win essentially locked in a first-place finish for Melissa.
The second to last event went to Samantha, securing the overall second-place finish. Unfortunately, no athlete could load all five implements in the final event, so the win went to Melissa, who had the fastest time in loading four of the objects.
Every year whether you are a professional, amateur, or just a strong bloke, the Clash On The Coast competition is an amazing playing field where anyone can come out on top. This year was no exception.
