Boris Wins Iceland's Strongest Man

Kristinn Oskar Haraldsson, aka Boris, won Iceland's Strongest Man today, a contest that has roots going back to 1985 when Jon Pall danced with the Husafell stone and Hjalti Arnason broke Gudni Sigurjonsson's arm in the arm wrestling event.

Adrian Rolinson was second and Gudjon Gislasson was third.

A couple of big names were conspicuously absent from the contest: Benedikt Magnusson, the phenomenal deadlifter, is recovering from an arm injury,and Audunn Jonsson, the powerlifter-strongman, came to California for the WSM Super Series event at Muscle Beach.
