“Unfortunately, all day rain in Canada,” reported Marcel Mostert last night, “so we skipped the Wheel Flip [and moved it to tomorrow] out of safety reasons and did two events in full rain.  

“It ended in two wins for Zydrunas, which brings him in the lead: He won the Wheelbarrow (450 kg in hands) over 17 meters in 10.95 sec.  Few athletes could finish it, so it was heavy.

“Also , he won the Crucifix (12.5 kg) in 1’ 7.59”. 

“On day 4 [today], we will do Farmer’s Walk, Wheel Flip  and Atlas Stones, and finally crown the winner of the Monster Milk Strongman Champions League–Canada with a $10,000 cash prize .

“All is still open . . . exciting!,” said Mostert.

Here are the official scores after three days of competition at SCL-Canada:

1. Zydrunas Savickas 88.0
2. Jean-François Caron 83.0
