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.
