“I’m hoping, of course, that more countries will be interested in organizing competitions for these athletes,” said Kinnunen, who is coming off this weekend’s very successful 105-kg Strongman World Record Breakers contest.

“The 105-kg Strongman World Record Breakers and Finnish Nationals were done on very short notice and the organizer, Voimapuoti, did a great job doing such a event in a short period time,” Kinnunen said.  “We are started already discussion with them to have 105-kg World Championships in Finland.

“In World Record Breakers - Finland there were four new world records: Car Walk (370 kg 25 m), Farmer’s Walk (120 kg, 70 m), Deadlift for Reps (332 kg), and Atlas Stones (100, 120, 140, 160, 180 kg),” Kinnunen said.  Kinnunen also assembled the known 105-kg strongman world records, which should be a tremendous incentive for everyone competing in this category.
