Arguably the third most prestige title in the sport Europes Strongest Man takes place April 7th at The First Direct Arena in Leeds England.

We were all excited for another showdown between Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall but even with Hall deciding to just do the log press event we still have a lot to look forward to as the level of talent is world class.

Events

  • Car Walk 450kg/990lbs for 20m/ 65ft
  • Atlas Stones from 120kg/264lbs to 200kg/440lbs

With the events and lineup Bjornsson has to be the clear favorite but he has struggled with the car walk in the past and if he makes a mistake in that event again I would not count out Savickas who seems to be improving, Janashia, Lalas and despite saying he has gotten sick this week Graham Hicks could surprise many with a podium finish as well.
