Jani Illikainen Repeats as Finland's Strongest Man

Celebrating its 20th birthday, Finland's Strongest Man drew big crowds this weekend, said organizer Ilkka Kinnunen. The field started with 19 competitors and the top eight went on to the finals, with Jani Illikainen successfully defending his title. Juha Matti Rasanen was second and Esa Qvintus was third. Kinnunen said, "The top two IFSA athletes, Tomi Lotta and Juha Aitala, were injured and therefore did not take part in the competition."
