Pritchett had Dimitar Savitinov and Nick Best on his heels, with Mark Felix also in the hunt, but he ended the day with a victory on the stones and the overall title. With the top two receiving invitations to the Arnold strongman contest, the Pritchett and Savitinov will head to Columbus, Ohio next month to lock horns with the likes of 2013 World’s Strongest Man winner Brian Shaw.
Final scores, top five:
