There were a number of standout performances at the 2016 Norwegian Grip Championships and along with the veterans, “new talents showed great displays of strength,” organizer and top competitor Eirik Bruun Ingebretsen reported to IronMind.

Heading the new-talent category was Thomas Larsen, who broke the world record for the IronMind Blockbuster Pinch Grip Block, by hauling up 39.30 kg “with ease.”

In the overall standings, Larsen finished second to Ingebretsen, who won the overall title, and “set a new world record in the trap bar deadlift with Fat Gripz.”
