Although "refrigerator race" might conjure up images of something quite different, this event was a yoke, said to weigh 410 kg, and the competitors went one pair at a time down a 30-meter course. The pairs were: Raimonds Bergmanis and Svend Karlsen, Mariusz Pudzianowski and Zydrunas Savickas, and Vasyl Virastiuk and Magnus Samuelsson.
The action continues tomorrow.
