Fortissimus World Strength has released to IronMind its 2018 Final Ranking of strongman performances, with Mateusz Kieliszkowski topping the list.
“The 25 year old strongman from Poland has proven in 2018 that he might be a strong contender for top honors within the next 3 years, either for the World’s Strongest Man title (he was this year’s runner-up) or for the Arnold Strongman Classic title. In 2018, Mateusz Kieliszkowski had a great run in the Philippines at the WSM competition, established a stone lifting record at the Arnold Strongman Classic, competed at the Europe Strongest Man, shattered the one arm dumbbell overhead lift world record ( 330-lb/150 kg) at the Ultimate Strongman Championship in England, won the Giants Live Finals, amongst other feats of strength.
“He edged out Canada’s strongman legend Jean-François Caron, last year’s winner on the points system, by a few points. Caron had a remarkable year with top 5 spots in every international competitions plus the overall championship of the Arnold Pro Strongman World Series.
Matjaz Belsak, from Slovenia, finished in 3rd place after his 7th place at the WSM, a 6th place at the Arnold Strongman Classic, and wins in Serbia, Finland and Abu Dhabi with the Strongman Champions League.
“In a few days, FORTISSIMUS WORLD STRENGTH will release its final list for the 2018 STRONGMAN OF THE YEAR title.”
