The second stage of the MHP Strongman Champions League is set for 11 April, at the FIBO in Cologne, and the 2014 World champion Martin Wildauer, aka The Deadlift Kid, is expected to return to competition, Marcel Mostert told IronMind today.

Wildauer suffered “a big injury in November of last year during the SCL Finals in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he ripped off his Achilles tendon completely. It’s remarkable to come back so fast after an injury like this,” said Mostert.

“The FIBO was won last year by Zydrunas Savickas. In a strong field with Eddie Hall, Krzysztof Radzikowski, Ervin Katona and more top strongman, the FIBO is always a prestigious contest to win for these athletes. So it will be this year again an awesome challenge with fireworks.
“We are positioned for another strong year: the MHP Strongman Champions League is broadcasting our series now in 96 countries all over the world and we are confident that we will hit a 100 countries this year, a historically special target since we started the MHP Strongman Champions League in 2008.

“Besides of this big league, we will also gone do the World Strongest Team this year, an event which we invented already in 1996. More news about this later in the year.

“So, let it be a great strongman year for all favorites and underdogs, first with World’s Strongest Man in Malaysia, and after that the grand finale of our league in November in Malaysia as well.

“The first world records we have set already again in Norway and China this year, and surely more explosives are to come this year and maybe already at the FIBO 2015 in Germany. We are truly looking forward to the new season 2015.
