Magnus Ver Magnusson on World's Strongest Man

Still trimmed down to about 270 pounds, Magnus Ver Magnusson pulled a partial deadlift of 445 kg at a show in Reykjavik, Iceland over the weekend.

The four-time World' Strongest Man winner had qualified for this year's WSM show, but decided to sit it out because his knees have been holding him back all year. "Why go if I can't really be fit" he said.

Looking at the results from the qualifying round, Magnus said he was surprised that Flemming Rasmussen didn't make it into the finals, and that anything can happen from this point forward.

Who's he picking to win?  Magnus said it's going to be the competitor who makes the fewest mistakes and stays healthy.
