Zydrunas Savickas AND Terry Hollands Win SCL Ireland

“Unique it is - two winners in one Strongman Champions League contest,” Marcel Mostert reported to IronMind, so he anticipated your next question: “How is this possible?”

“Well, on a nice sunny Sunday in Limerick, Ireland, on June 6, Zydrunas and Terry finished both on same points for first place,” Mostert confirmed.

“This happens sometimes in competitions,” Mostert said, referring to ties in the number of points, but “normally we do a count back then and whoever won most events is the winner.”

Things were a bit closer than that in Ireland, though, because Mostert said, “Out of six events, Zydrunas won three events, got two times second place and one time, fourth place. But Terry did exactly the same!”

“Therefore, the referees and the board of SCL decided to give both athletes the first place-
a unique win in the three-year history of Strongman Champions League.

“It was a great show, with many thanks to Gary and Shelly Kirwan as co-organizers in the SCL , who made it happen, the first SCL in Ireland,” Mostert continued.

“And it looks like the weather was unique too, as an Irish man told me that he got sunburned today, which almost never happens in Ireland.

“A great battle for the first place, but also the battle for third place was exciting, as Alexander Klushev and Agris Kazelniks both had 42 points before starting the last event, the carry and drag. Agris was a few seconds faster and took the third place overall.

“The deadlift was again one of the heaviest ever in Strongman Champions League: 400 kg for reps with a car, and only four athletes were able to do this. Terry won with 3 reps, Agris and Alex had 2 reps, and Zydrunas did 1 rep. It had to come out of their toes . . . For sure Bill Kazmaier would have liked this deadlift! And yes , we agree, it is not easy to win a SCL competition with these kind of weights.
When Zydrunas Savickas feels the strain in a deadlift, you know why Marcel Mostert said Bill Kazmaier would have liked this event. IronMind® | Courtesy of SCL.

Here are the overall scores of SCL–Ireland:

1. Terry Hollands, Zydrunas Savickas (tie) 62
3. Agris Kazelniks 51
4. Alexander Klyushev 48
5. Travis Ortmayer 42
6. Mark Westaby 40
7. Rafal Wilczynski 27
8. James Fennelly 25
9. Lewis McClean 23
10. Kevin Nee 21
11 Owen Sharahan out
12. Ervin Katona out
Summing up his satisfaction, Mostert told IronMind, "For sure we will be back next year in Ireland."

“With many thanks to the organization, the Irish people and enjoying their hospitality , we have packed our bags already again, to do next Saturday, 12 June, the 5th stage of the Strongman Champions League in Sofia–Bulgaria,” Mostert said . . . ready to keep his strongman train running down the tracks.

Stay tuned for the line up and events this week.

Evo, kot sem napovedal v Pivki, zdaj vemo zakaj mora biti na tekmi neparno število diciplin,....se redko zgodi, ampak, ko se zgodi si lahko hitro v zagati,...
