Hjalti Arnason told IronMind® that he is working on a major event - the Jon Pall Sigmarsson Classic - that would bring top international strongman competitors as well as IPF powerlifters to Iceland as part of a multi-sport event set in the Land of Fire and Ice.

IronMind® considers this to be good news for the strength world as Hjalti Arnason is uniquely qualified to put together something as special as this. Set in Iceland, an event like this could well become an international magnet as the former top-level strongman and powerlifter focuses his skills as a promoter on this developing project.
Incidentally, Hjalti Arnason’s film on Jon Pall Sigmarsson was both a popular and a critical success, giving an indication of Arnason’s ability to bring his passion for the strength world to broader markets.
