After the coldness in Lapland, the whole SCL team will strike down in Germany at the FIBO 2011. This is the biggest expo in the world for fitness equipment, clothes, supplements, etc. All kind of sports will be there, including the Strongman Champions League.
“With the great help of the German strongman federation, GFSA, and its president, Heinz Ollesch, and the main sponsor Monster Milk, we are sure that the SCL FIBO will be a fantastic event again.
“Just look to the start list, and you know it will be good already!,” Mostert said.
**However, there is a change: We decided to organize an open-air contest for the first time. In the courtyard between the halls 6,9 and 10/11, across the beer garden, there will be the Strongman Arena.
A mobile (roofed) grandstand and enough standing room will be available. So we can over disciplines which are even more spectacular. **
Here it is the official start list for SCL-Germany:
Zydrunas Savickas (Lithuania)
Terry Hollands (UK)
Gregor Stegnar (Slovenia)
Martin Wildauer (Austria)
Patrik Baboumain (Germany)
