Juha-Matti Rasanen Wins Finland's Strongest Man


Rasanen finished with 191.5 points to Heinonen's 189.5 points. Harri Simonen was third, with 183.5 points, Kalle Laaksonen was fourth, with 180.5 points, and Matti Uppa was fifth, with 173.5 points.

The competition was held in Tuuri, Finland, and, as strongman fans might guess, Janne Virtanen did not enter, as he starts to draw a bead on this year's World's Strongest Man contest.
