“Winning Europe’s Strongest Man in Leeds on Saturday was the legend Zydrunas Savickas,” Colin Bryce reported to IronMind.  “The Log Lift world record was broken for the 10th time by Big Z, as 216 kg was put overhead with ease by the great Lithuanian.  Second place in the competition was Vytautas Lalas.  Laurence Shahlaei took third.  The crowd was a stunning 5,000 people.”
