Matesz Baron Wins ASC Arnold Amateur Strongman World Championships

“Well, Matesz Baron definitely stole the show today,” ASC president Dione Wessels told IronMind, referring to the freshly crowned Arnold Amateur Strongman World Champion, who continued the winning pace he had established in the qualifiers.

“He is also quite the showman!  He won the Log for Reps and the Husafell Stone Carry.  Mike Burke of Colorado won the Stones. 

“Matesz Baron will be invited to compete in the Arnold Pro Strongman Classic next year!” said Wessels, and with what Mike Jenkins just did, the expectations will be high.

Here are the overall results:

1. Matesz Baron (Poland) 66.4
2. Haftor Julius (Iceland) 56.9
3. Mike Burke (Colorado, USA) 52.0
4. Jacob Bodi (Wisconsin, USA) 51.8
5. Tomas Rodriguez (Ohio, USA) 44.0
6. Mikhail Shivlyakov (Russia) 43.9
7. Brad Ardrey (Ohio, USA) 43.7
8. Paul Vaillencourt (Canada) 42.8
9. Oleksandr Lashyn (Ukraine) 38.6
10. Derek Devaughan (USA) 32.2
