In the middle of the Norwegian mountains, an arena has been built. An arena for giants. Huge power stairs, enormous Hercules hold pillars, timber yokes and a shitload of stones. Hafthor Bjørnsson has set world records on this equipment, Eddie Hall has been here, Krzysztof Radzikowski has cursed the stones several years in a row and JF Caron has been crowned SCL Winner here several times. This weekend 21 of the strongest women in the world will be here, using the same equipment, feeling the same awe and power. There is no arena more mythical and desirable for a strongman athlete to compete on than Fefor arena.


These women have been training hard for the coolest events for a long time, and finally they are on their way to the Norwegian mountains. Some of the ladies are already in Norway, exploring the beauty of this country, while others are waiting to board their planes. Every single one does have some competition nerves, every single one wonder how it is to compete in a arena like Fefor.
