Stefán Sölvi Pétursson was so popular at Fortissimus 2008 that IronMind’s Randall Strossen told him that he was surprised Stefán Sölvi left Canada without a bride.

Yesterday's victory is just the beginning for the young Icelandic strongman. “I hope to do so many times more,” he added, looking to build on his big win. “I did not have time to celebrate . . . Now it’s all about training and hoping to get to World’s Strongest Man!”
