Norway’s Strongest . . . Weight Classes

“Norway´s Strongest in weight classes was held today in Kristiansand, Norway and some really great action was witnessed in all classes,” Jyrki Rantanen reported to IronMind.

“In the women´s class, Janne Grandelen took both the -70kg and open class victory and she is now Norway´s Strongest Woman.

“In men´s -80kg class, the pre-favorite Marius Halvorsen won Eirek Gran by a 5.5 point margin.

“At -90kg, the competition was super tight between US World Champion Andreas Valand and Tim Enersen—their match ended up with a tie on points, but Andreas took his 4th (in a row) tittle with better placings.

“In the -105kg category, fresh European Champion Jorgen Skaug Augland was the man to watch, but a newcomer Lars Hjallis Halleraker surprised all with a showdown of 3 event wins and one tie pn his way to the title of Norway´s Strongest Man -105kg.

“The competition organizer, Kristiansand Strongman Team, did an excellent job even though a big part of their equipment was stolen a week ago, so special efforts were needed to make the show to happen,” said Rantanen.
