“Just after the fourth stage, SCL Holland, on June 30, we will go directly to China for the biggest competition we have ever done!” Marcel Mostert told IronMind.
Strongman is most often associated with being big, whether it’s the competitors, the implements or the surroundings. Here, SCL cofounder Marcel Mostert (who is roughly 6’ tall and 220 lb.) is dwarfed on what will be the location for one of the events when SCL goes to China in July.

“20 athletes, from 20 countries, with 100 million viewers on CCTV 1. We are proud to announce this contest as one of the biggest ever. In 5 days we will do 12 events, and 3 Guinness record events as a bonus. A total of US $30,000 (pre-tax) will be there for the athletes,” Mostert said.
The competition will be from July 4 - 9 in Jiangsu, and Mostert promised “a special opening ceremony.”
Here is the official start list:
|11.||Jean Francois Caron||Canada|
|17.||Levi Veoga||New Zealand|
|18.||Etienne Smit||South Africa|
“The contest will be broadcast on CCTV 1, the biggest TV channel in China. We are proud to make this all happen, for the athletes and the excited fans in China,” said Mostert.
