Referring to the global economic downturn, Odd Haugen told IronMind®, “It’s been a tough year and we have had to retool a bit. Ulf [Bengtsson] and I, as the principals, are taking on a lot more direct responsibility for WSMSS. It’s going to be big.”

Apollon’s Axle (to the shoulder and then overhead; last man standing)
Husafell Stone (180 kg)
Power Medley (Fingal Finger, Giant Farmer’s Walk)
