“Martin Wildauer won in perfect style; in the end he had a lead of 12 points,” Heinz Ollesch reported to IronMind.  “Second was Mirko Rothe from Germany and third was Michael Votter from Austria.

“10 athletes where competing in five events at -13 degrees Celsius [about 8-1/2 degrees Fahrenheit].

“Martin recovered very well from his pec injury in May, and is now preparing full speed for the next [Strongman] Champions League season.

“The aim for next year is to qualify for World’s Strongest Man and do some damage there. :-) .”
