“The leader in the MLO Strongman Champions League, Dainis Zageris (aka TITAN), won SCL Portugal last weekend, one 1 point ahead of the “Polish Power” Krzysztof Radzikowki,” Marcel Mostert reported to IronMind.
This was a nice reversal of fortunes for Zageris, as he had lost the previous stage, SCL Curacao, by one point.
“The new number 1 on the Spanish strongman scene, Roberto Rodriquez, surprised many with a 3rd place overall, on the same points as Matjaz Belsak from Slovenia, Mostert continued.
“Roberto even won the first 2 events in this tight and hard battle with 3 equal final placings of other athletes.
“Also, there were 2 newcomers where in the SCL Portugal: Topi Ovaska from Finland and Renato Soares from Portugal. They did well and got a great experience, in the old school of Strongman.
“The new Finn is a big guy who only needs some more experience, same as Sean O’Hagan , the biggest Strongman in the World, who ended in the top 6 here.
“The big Tyre deadlift for reps with 390 kg was also a great event, especially without the power suits, which are banned in SCL now—we still have fantastic results. Dainis Zageris and Krzysztof Radzikowski both made 11 reps, for the win.
" Many thanks here also to Nuno and Angelina Araujo, who did an outstanding job at by organizing the Power Expo in Porto and the professional Strongman within.
