Louis-Philippe Jean Wins Canada's Strongest Man . . . Hugo Girard Injured . . . Retires

The second day of Canada's Strongest Man did not start well for Hugo Girard, who was injured on the first event and tearfully announced his retirement.

Girard thanked everyone for "ten wonderful years," and he got a rousing ovation from the crowd.

Louis-Philippe Jean, who had impressed many with his performance at Fortissimus, turned in a strong performance, winning three of the four events, and he captured the Canada's Strongest Man title, which also earned him an invitation to this year's World's Strongest Man contest.

Louis-Philippe told IronMind®, "I'm Canada's Strongest Man . . . I am going to WSM . . . Yes!"

Here are the top five:

1. Louis-Philippe Jean, 82.5 points
2. Jean-Francois Caron, 75.5 points
3. Christian Savoie, 68 points
4. Matt Parks, 56 points
5. Jessen Paulin, 54 points
