Mariusz Pudzianowski Wins WSMSS Vulkan Grand Prix

"The Polish machine rolls on," said a leading strongman official, describing Mariusz Pudzianowski's strong performance at today's World's Strongest Man Super Series Vulkan Grand Prix in Varberg, Sweden.

Janne Virtanen finished second, followed by Jesse Marunde.

Marunde had enough points to hold onto third place overall, even though he was forced to sit out the final event, due to a hamstring injury.

Mikael Starov was fourth overall, Vidzis Raivis was fifth and Dave Ostlund was sixth overall, and by virtue of his top-four finish, Starov received an automatic invitation to this year's World's Strongest Man contest.

It rained throughout the contest, but that wasn't enough to deter the large, enthusiastic crowd huddled under umbrellas - quite a comment on their support for strongman.
