Event Eight — Bag Over Bar

The eight bags in the Bag Over Bar final event ranged from 20 to 32 kilograms (44 to 70.5 pounds). The bar the athletes had to toss the bags over was 4.57 meters (15 feet), and they had 75 seconds to finish. Derwinsky edged out Boudreault for first, but both were the only to toss all eight bags successfully.

Wesley Derwinsky — Eight bags in 23 seconds
Maxime Boudreault — Eight bags in 33.79 seconds
James Jeffers — Six bags in 17.62 seconds
Frédérick Rhéaume — Five bags in 18.52 seconds

Kelly Branton — Five bags in 37 seconds
Joey Lavallée — Five bags in 46.22 seconds
Gabriel Rhéaume — Four bags in 21.26 seconds
Tyler Sigurdson — Four bags in 34.92 seconds
Sean Hayes — Three bags in 9.53 seconds
Ben Court — Two bags in 15.43 seconds
Keven Malenfant-Caron — One bag in eight seconds

Boudreault’s win at the 2022 CSM book-ends a solid spring and summer of results in 2022. The 31-year-old has finished in the top five at four straight contests. A first-time victory in his native Canada is likely the most satisfying for the top-tier competitor.
