Schoonveld Wins American Hercules

Bad weather wasn't enough to stop things at this weekend's American Hercules strongman competition, which was the final American qualifier for World's Strongest Man (WSM).

Brian Schoonveld won the event, Phil Pfister was second, Johnny Perry was third, Mark Philippi was fourth, Odd Haugen was fifth and Chad Coy was sixth. By virtue of their places, Schoonveld, Perry and Philippi now join Karl Gillingham and Phil Pfister as the Americans who will be invited to this year's World's Strongest Man show.
