"The FIBO was a huge success," Heinz Ollesch reported to IronMind: "Travis [Ortmayer] won ahead of the 'Deadlift Kid' Martin Wildauer from Austria, who won the Bavarian Stonelift in great style."

Igor Werner, the winner from last year's FIBO Classic came in third. Tobias Ide, currently the Strongest Man of Germany came in fourth and set a new German record in the log lift with 177.5 kg. Jarno Hams got injured during the log lift, as did Tobias Ide in the wheel flip, but both should be ok within the next two weeks for the Strongman Champions League in Serbia. Martin Wildauer qualified also for that contest; it's his first time at the Strongman Champions League.
