In front of a crowd of 3,500 people, Holland won the IFSA World's Strongest Team (two-man) title this weekend in Sarvar, Hungary.
This was the "second time in the 25 years of Dutch strongman history," said Marcel Mostert, "after Berend [Veneberg] and Wout [Zjilstra] did it in 1998 in Hardenberg, Holland."
"We did 5 events," reported Mostert:
-Atlas stones until 190 kg
-Wheel flip with 515-kg tyre
-Farmer's walk with 140 kg
- Medley with Husafell stone 180 kg
- Powerstairs with 150-, 220- and 300-kg blocks"
"It was amazing to see how the son of Laszlo Fekete pick up a 190-kg Atlas stone and put it on the platform (must be in the genes!), and also how he did a perfect wheel flip, where other teams really struggled with the 515-kg heavy tyre!," said Mostert. "The show will be broadcasted at 22 September on Eurosport."

1 - HOLLAND - 42 points (Jarno Hams and Edwin Hakvoort)
2 - HUNGARY - 41 (Laszlo Fekete and his 22-year-old son L-Fekete)
