Polish Power: Pudzianowski and Toczek Shine in Nautilus WSM Super Series

It lasted about twelve hours, with thousands of fans packing the stadium in Poland today, as the original field of twelve competitors was first reduced to eight, and then, for the final event, only the top six continued.

Giving their local fans just want they wanted, the pair of Polish strongmen entered in the contest finished one, two, with former World's Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski turning in a dominating performance for the victory.

The top six final places and points were:

1. Mariusz Pudzianowski (Poland) 45 points
2. Slawomir Toczek (Poland) 30 points
3. Jesse Marunde (United States) 27 points
4. Elbrus Nigmatullin (Russia) 27 points
5. Vidzis Raivis (Latvia) 22 points
6. Janne Virtanen (Finland) 20 points

Slawomir Toczek and Elbrus Nigmatullin have received invitations to this year's World's Strongest Man competition based on their final positions in this contest.

Odd Haugen, who didn't make it to the finals, didn't let that dampen his enthusiasm for the competition, saying,:"It was another great contest - the Poles really know how to put on a terrific strongman contest."
