"He won two events," Marcel Mostert told IronMind, "competing against the best strongmen in the world.  We did a 420-kg car deadlift for reps—Zydrunas Savickas did 10 reps and Jean-Francois Caron did 13!”

"The contest is well organized and they have already sold 4,000 tickets for Saturday and 5,000 tickets for Sunday," said Mostert.
