This was the third stage of the MHP Strongman Champions League 2013 season and “The Austrian ‘Deadlift Kid’ was in a super shape and finished on second place, just 2 points behind Ervin,” Mostert said.  “He won the weight for height with 25 kg in a personal record over 5.60 meter.  He also did an attempt  for a new world record at 5.80 meters, but just missed it by a few centimeters.


“The new Latvian champion, Dainis Zageris, got a second place on the weight for height with 5.40 meter and a third place overall.  A personal record for him as well.  Tomi Lotta was wearing the MHP/SCL leader shirt as the highest ranked athlete and Ervin Katona won the MHP Fan Favorite Strongman shirt.
 
“Jan Wagenaar from Holland did well with a sixth place, his best in an SCL contest so far.  Johannes Arsjo got a little injury during the 360-kg frame walk and was very disappointed.  Still, A beautiful sunny day with great crowd in a fantastic atmosphere made the competition a very succesful and exciting day,” said Mostert.
