Schoonveld Wins American Hercules

Bad weather wasn't enough to stop things at this weekend's American Hercules strongman competition, which was the final American qualifier for World's Strongest Man (WSM).

Brian Schoonveld won the event, Phil Pfister was second, Johnny Perry was third, Mark Philippi was fourth, Odd Haugen was fifth and Chad Coy was sixth. By virtue of their places, Schoonveld, Perry and Philippi now join Karl Gillingham and Phil Pfister as the Americans who will be invited to this year's World's Strongest Man show.

MILO®: A Journal for Serious Strength Athletes

December 2015, Vol. 23, No. 3: He'd been slogging away in the 2004 World's Strongest Man for over a week and after finishing the last event (and placing third overall), Magnus Samuelsson asked Randall Strossen if he had a Captains of Crush No. 4 gripper with him. Is the Pope Catholic? Magnus's brother, Torbjorn, had said to me, "Magnus has no fear of the No. 4," but that seemed understandable given the things I'd already seen Magnus do with Captains of Crush grippers.
