    Intense. Isn't he like 21 or something? I've seen him before on some strongman comp on tv I think.

    Yeah, I know the phrase is over used but he really looked like he had a lot left in him.

    940...That's exactly 2 times what I can DL. He's a strong kid. What's the world record?

    EDIT:
    Here's the link to Madmick's world record thread:
    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?t=296917

    Carnal or other competing lifters: that pull would have passed, right? Or does IPF forbid the use of amonia?

    yea that was pretty funny, he was just oblivious to it or just that in the zone. He's built like a brick shit house for being so young, very impressive.

    that is one big fucking kid...

    i saw a vid of a competition with him in it awhile ago...

    it was like a world meet or some shit...

    it was here in s&p, and it was him and some other guys lifting...

    he was doing that crazy shit in it too...

    that guy's got a bright fucking future...

    It's guys like him that make me wanna give up my quest for the title of the strongest PLer ever. He's only a year older. Goddamn.

    Hahaha. I gotta admit, I'm green with envy.

    Props to Benedikt though!

    People from Iceland should be excluded from PL and strongman comps, they are not normal human beings. Magnus Ver Magnusson being the prime example.
