4th Annual WHEA Finnish Grip Championships
by Jyrki Rantanen
The 4th Annual WHEA Finnish Grip Championships were on February 3 at Tiinan Treenipalvelut in Iisalmi With a nice crowd sheering we saw some magnificent performances and the day created also two new IronMind world records as Jesse Pynnönen did the time of 19.12 seconds in the CoC Silver Bullet with a No. 4. The event produced super-level performances as you hardly got to the overall top 10 in CoC Silver Bullet if you got less than 20 seconds time using a Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper.
Another great world record was set on the Ironmind Hub, where Mervi Pekki took the new lead with a 26.36-kg lift.
Here links to videos of these new world records:
