Mariusz Wins the Stones at WSM

Yesterday he locked up the title and today he put the frosting on the cake: in a blazing time, Mariusz Pudzianowski won the final event in the 2005 MET-Rx World's Strongest Man contest. Tarmo Mitt was second in the stones, Dave Ostlund was third, Elbrus Nigmatulin was fourth and Jesse Marunde was fifth. Marunde lost time when he had to reset the first stone, and Jarek Dymek tore a biceps in the event.
