OdgovorNapisal/-a udovich » So Avg 28, 2010 1:34 pm

Strongman Champions League launches the seventh stage of its 2010 season this coming Saturday, August 28, in Belgrade, Serbia.


Strongman Champions League (SCL) is set for this weekend’s contest in Serbia—home of Ervin Katona. Here, he is shown competing at Fortissimus in 2008, where a strongman fan attending her first live contest told IronMind’s Randall Strossen that Ervin Katona was her favorite competitor.

“The field will be not so strong as usual,” SCL cofounder Marcel Mostert told IronMind, “because we are just a few weeks before World’s Strongest Man [WSM], and a lot of guys want to give their best there.

“We are very proud that our top 10 were invited to WSM this year,” said Mostert. “It’s a result of good cooperation with Colin Bryce and Giants Live.”

And the real beneficiary of this cooperation is strongman, overall, as it assures a first-rate field of athletes. Addressing this point, Mostert said, “I’m totally convinced that the best 30 athletes will be in Sun City this year,” referring to the 2010 MET-Rx WSM venue.

“In Serbia, of course Ervin Katona will be there in his home country, along with other names like Agris Kazelniks and Simon Sulaiman. But also we will have complete new names there, like Gery Schiel from Austria and Akos Nagy from Hungary.”

The events are Log Lift, Farmer’s Walk, Weight for Height, Deadlift, Car Pull and Atlas stones.

“It will be a nice competition in 30-degree (86 F) heat!," Mostert said, adding that admission is free.

“In 35 degree [95 F] heat, Ervin Katona was the best of the rest,” Marcel Mostert told IronMind, as the Serbian strongman picked up his second Strongman Champions League (SCL) victory of the 2010 season.

“After winning the SCL–Bulgaria earlier this year, Ervin Katona won in his own country his second Strongman Champions League contest of the 2010 season, the SCL–Serbia,” Marcel Mostert told IronMind today.

“Newcomer Gery Schlier from Austria did a good job and got fifth place, just 1 point ahead of Golier Brano from Slovakia and Simon Sulaimon from Syria.
“Ervin Katona is now on the third place on the Strongman Champions League ranking [for the 2010 season], with Terry Hollands still leading,” said Mostert.
Looking ahead, Mostert said, “The finals in the Ukraine in November will crown the overall winner of 2010,” a title that Andrus Murumets won in 2009 and Zydrunas Savickas won in 2008.
Here are the official results for the top six from SCL–Serbia:

1. Ervin Katona 60.0
2. Agris Kazelniks 42.0
3. Gabor Fargacs 38.5
4. Akos Nagy 36.0
5. Gery Schlier 28.0
6. Golier Brano 27.0
