Adding some numbers to the picture, Kinnunen said, “The competition brought over 50.000 people to FIBO to watch all kind of action from fitness, bodybuilding, MMA to strongman.
“This year the SCL competition events were Maximum Log Lift, Bavarian Stone Deadlift, Forward Hold, Yoke Medley, Giant Dumbbell Press and Atlas Stones.
“Zydrunas Savickas showed that his top shape is continuing winning 3 events out of 6. and in one equal victory with Laurence," Kinnunen said.
Here are the top six, officially:
"The top three will meet 3 powerlifters in a Deadlift Challenge later in the evening, so stay tuned for more news,” said Kinnunen.
