“We have around 38 athletes competing in light [under 90 kg], middle [under 105 kg] and heavy [+105 kg] weights in the amateur class, plus an all-star lineup in the pros [where] we are very lucky to have Rauno Heinla, 'Estonia’s Strongest Man,' competing along side our top athletes: Alan ‘The Monster’ Kliese and our two top athletes from New Zealand, Jono MacFarlane and Nick Hansen. This will be one serious battle,” said Andrews.

Atlas Stone for reps – 170 kg
