2016 Ultimate Strongman World Championships Results
The first ever Ultimate Strongman World Championships took place on December 10th at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, UK. This show featured events such as a rising bar max deadlift, axle clean & press medley, giant tire flip and of course Atlas stones. The athletes consisted of 12 of the best Strongman in the world including Zydrunas Savickas, Eddie Hall, Laurence Shahlaei & Mikhail Shivlyakov
The show had a unique and refreshing feel with over the top athlete introductions, lasers, light shows and loud music you could tell the emphasis was to put on a live performance that was entertaining to those in attendance.
Unforutnely Eddie Hall pulled out of the contest during the first event the yoke walk, Laurence Shahlaei showed up looking massive and in top form capping off a very successful year in Strongman taking the overall win. The new lighter Zydrunas Savickas did not look in his usual top form and seems to still be recovering from a few injuries a long with new leverages at a much lower bodyweight taking 7th on the day.
