Savickas Leads World Muscle Power

Dolbeau-Mistassini, Quebec—Putting his legs to work on the final event of the first day, Zydrunas Savickas squatted his way into the lead at the World Muscle Power Championships.

Coming into the squat, Hugo Girard had a solid lead, but what appeared to be poor foot placement held Girard to one rep in the squat, which dropped him into third place at the end of day one.  Savickas, who banged out 11 reps in the squat, is in first place with 41.5 points, followed by Vasyl Virastiuk at 39 points, and Girard is in third place with 36.5 points.  Defending World's Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowki is in fourth (29 points), Raimonds Bergmanis is in fifth place (26 points), and Mark Philippi, who won the squat with 12 reps, is in sixth place (24.5 points).
