Paul Ohl: Fortissimus 2010, First Thoughts

IronMind® asked Paul Ohl if, looking forward, he had any first thoughts about next year’s competition, and Ohl said, “As we look ahead, to 2010 for instance, we know for a fact that we cannot and will not settle for less than what has been accomplished in 2008 and 2009.”

Ohl, who is the president of Fortissimus said, “[It is] impossible to settle for less.  The concept is not to be altered.  Fortissimus is committed to the ultimate challenge in strongman.  That commands the best strength athletes in the world, the best combination of ten events and the best logistics.  But above all, Fortissimus needs to remain all-inclusive and work in close cooperation with strongman organizations in the USA, Europe, Australia and Asia.  This is a must.”
