Zydrunas Savickas: "I Will Compete at Fortissimus"

"Zydrunas Savickas, six-time winner of the Arnold Strongman contest and two-time [IFSA] world champion has made it official," Fortissimus president Paul Ohl told IronMind®: "He will compete for the title."

In addition to his major contest victories, Zydrunas Savickas has set world records in strongman, been honored by both his country and the sport itself, and his performances have demonstrated such raw strength that many consider him the greatest strongman alive.

"Zydrunas Savickas is more than a champion - he is a huge asset for the sport of strongman," Ohl continued, speaking for the board of directors. "We are honored by his decision."

The respect is mutual because the man who lets his actions speak for themselves told IronMind, "Yes I will compete. Fortissimus [is a] very good competition and I accept [the] invitation."
