In a clean-as-whistle, dominating performance, Thom Fingalsson closed the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper under official conditions and has been certified.
Thom lives, “outside Gothenburg in Sweden in a small town called Bollebygd. My interest is my wonderful wife and two kids mixed with grip sport, powerlifting and a touch of strongman.
“I have been into grip sport for around 1 year now and got 4th on Swedish nationals in March. Grippers I have been doing for around 2.5 years now. My goal is to have the strongest grip in Sweden and be a contender for the top places worldwide. I would probably be even better at grip sport if I didnt have this gripper-bug stealing my attention all the time. I hope in time I will be able to close the[Captains of Crush] No. 4 gripper and do certifications as high as I can.
“Thanks for providing top notch equipment and holding this certification opportunities for us to compete,” Fingalsson said.
