For the fifth year in a row, SCL Norway – World’s Strongest Viking are held up in the mountains over the little village of Vinstra. The historical hotel that has housed both kings and poets are ready to house 14 of the strongest men in the world, the chefs are ready to feed these big guys and everyone working at the hotel tells me that this is their favorite arrangement during the year.

The arena is better looking than ever, the equipment has been repaired and refurbished. New equipment has been made, and this year it even looks like the gods of weather are on our side.

 

The fourteen strong men are:

Chris Burke – USA
Lucain Herrick – USA
Nill Saybe – Honduras

 

Eyþór Ingólfsson Melsteð – Iceland
Johan Langhorst – Netherlands
Mika Torro – Finland
Dennis Kohlruss – Germany
Sean O Hagan – Ireland
Ryan England – England
Dan Harrisson – Japan
Stefan Sekej.- Norway
Dainis Zageris – Latvia
Krzysztof Radzikowski – Poland
Ole Martin Kristiansen – Norway

Krzysztof is defending his title from last year, and this year he really will have to work hard to take the win. There are several very hungry athletes in the lineup.

The events they will compete in are:



– HERCULES HOLD
– VIKING BOAT PULL
– FINGAL FINGER
– VIKING PRESS
– POWERSTAIRS
– NATURAL STONE CARRY



First event will go Friday the 25th, at 7PM (Norwegian time), and the next five events will start Saturday 26th at 11AM.

We will try to come with some updates on the SCL Norway Facebook page during the competition.
