Hakan Petschler Wins the Giant Lift Stone Competition

Swedish strongman and a top grip guy, Hakan Petschler won the Giant Lift competition today in Gamleby, Sweden by loading a 180-kg stone on a pedestal that was 120 cm off the ground.

Unlike the manufactured stones used in many strongman competitions, the Giant Lift contest features natural stones, bringing the event back to its origins as a most basic and impressive test of strength—which is especially appropriate since Gamleby means "old village" in English.
