Los Angeles – Terry Hollands showed once again why he’s considered World’s Strongest Man podium material as he won the strongman contest at the FitExpo today.

Nick Best was second, and as reported earlier today on IronMind’s Twitter page, unofficially speaking, Terry Hollands and Nick Best were officially invited to the Arnold strongman contest today on the basis of their performance here.

Here are the final scores for the top ten:

1. Terry Hollands 125.5
2. Nick Best 115.5
3. Mark Felix 102.0
4. Louis-Philippe Jean 101.5
5. Marshall White 100.0

7. Dan Harrison 88.0
8. Jean-Francois Caron 84.5

This marked another step forward for the Los Angeles FitExpo and was another standout Odd Haugen strongman contest, as he opened the doors to up-and-coming strongman competitors who seized the opportunity to pit themselves against some of the top tier of the professional strongman circuit.
