No one, probably, was surprised with the results of this year’s Europe’s Strongest Man. Hafthor Bjornsson became a winner for the 5th time in a row. The Mountain seems to be unstoppable.
Iron Biby didn’t manage to set a new world record and got only 220 kg this time. 214 kg is a new American record for Kearny (World’s strongest gay) who beat Oberst’s record and a new British record for Hicks who beat the record by Eddie Hall.
Mateusz Kielszkowski, as well as Larry Wheels, showed very good results. For Larry Wheels, it was the first competition.
Hafthor Bjornsson won that log press challenge.
Hafthor Bjornsson competed against Mateusz Kielszkowski, but let’s not forget that The Mountain is one of the best dealifters on Earth. Hafthor did 10 really easy reps and Mateusz did 5.
Tyre Flip&Anchor Drag
Kielszkowski did really well here. He was the winner in that event and even was better than Hafthor Bjornsson.
Pillars of Hercules
This event is a classic Strongman incredible performance. Mark Felix who is 52 became the winner in the event when holding on to the pillars for almost 1,5 minute, namely 82 seconds.
This competition was eventually between Bjornsson and Kielszkowski. In order to win, Thor had to get only 3 stones up and Mateusz had to get all 5 stones up to become the second. Kielszkowski did it for 22.61 seconds and Bjornsson did it for 20 seconds and became the winner of Europe’s Strongest Man for the 5th time.
Our congrats to The Mountain but no need to deny that Mateusz has a bright future in sports. He is just 24 years old. Deadlift is his weak side, but we wish him to improve it and show his best next time!
