Iranian strongman Farzad Mousakhani made a big splash at Vlad Redkin's strongman contest in Minsk, Belarus last week, and Redkin told IronMind, "I think we find new Iranian Star - Farzad Mousakhani."

The 26-year-old Mousakhani is 190 cm tall (just under six feet three inches) and weighs 150 kg (330 pounds), Redkin told IronMind®.

Also singing Farzad Mousakhani's praises is Omir Amiri, Asian Strongman Federation president. Amiri told IronMind® that Mousakhani deadlifts 400 kg, among other things, and that he is now becoming a professional strongman.
