Donna Moore Wins Worlds Strongest Woman
It was one of the strongest group of women ever assembled and one of the heaviest contests in the history of Strongwoman only fitting for the first official Worlds Strongest Woman since 2003.
Kristin Rhodes Was off to a dominating start winning the first two events the Viking Press with 14 reps and taking the 550 yoke 20 meters in 9:57 seconds.
In the third event the silver dollar deadlift the bar rose to 300kg/660lbs and created a log jam with 6 athletes tying four third having to share 8.5pts including Rhodes. Tracey Halladays hit 320kg to take third while Donna Moorehit 330kg for second to pick up 13pts Anna Harjapaa won the event with a massive 335kg/737lbs to pick up 14 big points the event win and most likely a world record in the Silver Dollar Deadlift but we need to confirm.
The fourth event looked absolutely brutal consisting of a 140kg duck walk into a 105kg Farmers Walk
Rhodes struggled with the duck walk on way to a 10th place finish which moved her out of first place overall. Anna Harjapaa finished the course in 44.53 for third place while Donna Moore shattered that with a time of 33.49 before Lidia Gynko managed to finish in an insane time of 29.08 for first place.
The Stone series was the heaviest ever ranging from 100kg to 140kg (308lbs) the heaviest stone ever in a Strongwoman series. Kristin Rhodes loaded 4 stones in 29.59 for 4th in the event whileOlga Liashchuk managed 4 stones in 29.21 to take third. Liefia Ingalls who usually competes as a Middleweight held her own loading 4 stones in 27.97 to take second but it was Donna Moore who was the only woman to load all 5 in a time of 28 seconds to earn the title of Worlds Strongest Woman.
