Brian Shaw added a couple more exclamation points to his 2010 strongman season by winning the World Strongman Super Series Swedish Grand Prix, as well as the overall title for 2010.

Here’s how things shaped up at the top, by event:

• Laurence Shahlaei kicked things off with a victory in the Super Yoke.
• Nick Best took the Shield Carry to another level.
• Brian Shaw (who had finished second in the first two events) annihilated the field on the Farmer’s Walk.
• Brian Shaw must have decided that finishing first is better than second, because he also won the next event, the log lift.*
• Nick Best once again proved his name on the Axle deadlift (Brian Shaw came in second).
• Brian Shaw smoked the field on the Stones of Strength.
