The MHP SCL Log Lift World Championships took place last sunday in Vilnius, Lithuania. The competition was part of the sport expo organised by Zydrunas Savickas. This time Zydrunas himself did not take part of the competition, because of his busy schedule organizing the full expo, which pulled in around 15,000 people in two days. Zydrunas Savickas is the world record holder for the Log Lift,with a result of 228 kg
Vidas Bekaitis (Lithuania) took the title with result of 200 kg. Vidas lifted this weight on his last attempt—it looked very easy for him, and it seemed that he could have gone much higher. Second place in the competition went to Krzyzsztof Radzikowski, who lifted 195 kg. Krzyzsztof also tried 200 kg, but the torn biceps he got in SCL Romania made the lifts very difficult.
Third was Latvian Dainis Zageris with result of 190kg.
