Having just added a title sponsor (Lebara Mobile) is no reason for Denim Bison representative and Strongman Champions League - London event organizer Sandra Donskyte to rest on her laurels: instead, last week she was off to Lithuania, where she “caught up with the Big Z [Zydrunas Savickas] in Vilnius, at his personal gym.”

In Sandra’s words, she was there “to see how this strongman sweats before the two biggest events of the year,” referring to the World’s Strongest Man contest and the Strongman Champions League - London contest.
Here’s an entry from Sandra’s journal:
Lithuania. Vilnius. Zydrunas Savickas' gym. Friday. Midday. Training for deadlift lasting 3 hours. Loads of water. Loads of sweat. Very little emotions. No stress. You can only see the challenge of added kilograms: 100kg . . . 200kg . . . 300kg . . . 400kg. The aura of a real powerful man. The strongman will train for the Atlas Stones event in the other Lithuanian town with his like-minded friends on Saturday. Sunday is a day off for sport.
