    Ironmind has been posting the results and as of today, American Jesse Marunde was the overall leader after four events. He looked like he had a good shot at being the first American to win since Kaz in 82.

    The first 4 events and results were.

    FINGAL FINGERS

    1. Jesse Marunde
    2. Dominic Filiou
    3. Jarek Dymek
    4. Don Pope
    5. Dave Ostlund

    PILLARS OF HERCULES

    1. Tarmo Mitt
    2. Don Pope
    3. Ralf Ber
    4. Mariusz Pudzianowski
    5. Dave Ostlund

    FRIDGE CARRY

    1. Mariusz Pudzianowski
    2. Dominic Filiou
    3. Jarek Dymek
    4. Jesse Marunde
    5. Ralf Ber

    OVERHEAD LOG LIFT

    1. Mariusz Pudzianowski
    2. Jesse Marunde
    3. Dominic Filiiou
    4. Jarek Dymek, Ralf Ber (tie)


    Today was the Chinese "ding" carry (a 375lb pot) and Squats (671 lbs) and Friday is the Atlas Stones. Some people thought Jesse was the favorite because he is slightly better at the stones than Mariusz and also Pudz has never completed all the squats (though he never had to because he always so far ahead)

    Well, Mariusz came out today and blew away the competiion winning both events easily. He can completly bomb the stones and still win.

    Jesse still has a good shot at second and Canadian Dominic Filiou is third.


    Here is what Dave Ostlund (one of the competitiors) posted on another board about todays events.

    "Day 3 is finished. Mariusz is 3x WSM. He has a 10pt lead over Jesse and even if he did not do stones and got 0 pts and Jesse won stones, he would win on countback.

    Squat was first today and we did it in the rain.

    Mariusz was one of 3 guys to do all 7 lifts and he did it fastest. Second was Dominic and third was Ralf Ber.

    Janne and Jarek made 6 lifts, Jesse and Don made 5, me and Elbrus made 4, and Tarmo did 3.

    9th for me on squat, but 671 is a PR for me so I'm not too disappointed.

    Ding Carry was second after about a 3 hr break.

    1st- Mariusz 90m
    2nd- Virtanen 77m
    3rd- Tarmo 71m
    4th- Nigmatulin 69m
    5th- Dymek 67m
    6th- Ostlund 66m
    7th- Either Jesse or Ber with just over 60m
    8th-
    9th- Pope 45m
    10- Filiou 28m

    The technique everyone used was for the top of the ding to be against the chest/stomach and the feet were sticking straight out. It was much more stressful on the hamstrings than conan's wheel, husafel, or any other front carry.

    Barring a major disaster tomorrow, Jesse will finish second. There is a tight race for 3rd between Filiou, Dymek, and Virtanen.

    I am currently in 9th but with a good performance tomorrow I can move as high as 6th, but probably only to 7th or 8th.

    If Don performs up to par on stones he will wind up in 6th most likely."

    Nice to see an American near the top. Hopefully, it can spur some more interest in the sport here in the states.

    Ostlund actually posts on another board I visit, and he's so low key and mellow I didn't even know he was strong, let alone THAT strong until somebody was like "GOODLUCK DAVE" and then I found out and was floored.

    That's interesting about the IFSA. Makes you wonder where Marunde would be in the WSM rankings if all those current IFSA guys were still doing the Met-RX show. Hmmmmm.

    6. Tarmo Mitt
    7. Ralf Ber
    8. Don Pope
    9. Dave Ostlund
    10. Elbrus Nigmatulin

    I remember "back in the day" when Samuelsson was competing. You had all these strong mfers and then Magnus. Whatever the other guys did, Magnus just relaxed, did what they did just twice as fast or twice as much. That was entertaining.

    I love Magnus S. and think he doesn't get credited enough for his longevity in the sport. He still placed well in the 2004 events despite having come back from being plagued by injuries and aging.

    Zydrunas has to be one of the most active strongmen ever. I can't open a Muscle Magazine that covers an event without seeing him, and I think that's great for the Sport. I think too many guys limit how much they compete and thus go under-the-radar to casual fans of strength athletics.

    Though I still wished I could have seen Mark Henry compete in the Met-Rx events just because. Kaz said he thinks pound for pound Henry is possibly one of if not the strongest man/men walking the planet were he to buckle down and get serious. But I would have just loved to see him competing with guys like Samuelson/Zydrunas/Marius and all the others.

    Yeah, I've heard more than one person make the same comment about Henry. More genetic ability than anybody they've ever seen, and absolutelly no work ethic.

    And for my money, in any real "strongman" contest (no track and field with weights!) Savickas is the king.

    Bergmanis, he's the one who always goes "poo poo" before every lift right? Has the pop-eye gimmick. It's tough for me to remember these days all the dang Europeans names and whatnot.

    I agree though, Zydrunas is indeed the man. I always like that little grin he has, too. It's almost like he knows that if he's spot-on no one can really take him. Plus I've never really seen him screaming and straining and shit, he makes every lift look pretty easy when he completes them.

    I think Mark Henry's biggest accomplishment in strength athletics was that he lifted the Thomas Inch dumbbell, he still competes occasionally, here's his latest exploit:

    http://users3.ev1.net/~beckfish/2002 Results.htm

    That's the last time I've read about him competing. Too bad Zydrunas wasn't in that group, but Bergmanis was.

    The traditionally dominant Eastern Europeans need to watch out though. North America (yeah, for those of you who don't know Canada is as good or better at SM) is fielding some young bucks who will be trouble. Marunde being the most obvious, but Ostlund is young yet too, Jessen Paulin, my personal friend Jesse Snadden is strong as FUCK for 21, and of course the infamous VanHatfield.
