Zydrunas Savickas Leads in Tulsa

The action continues in the World Strongman Challenge tonight, with Zydrunas Savickas holding a nine-point lead, Dione Wessels told IronMind®.

Wessels filed this summary of yesterday's competition.

"The log medley was the first event. After many attempts from athletes on the four logs, Zydrunas was the only athlete to get all four logs. The logs were 300, 325, 350, and 400 pounds. Zydrunas easily pressed 400 as though it were 200. Van Hatfield was second, followed by Derek Poundstone.

"The second event was the car squat using the Chevy SS Malibu. Most athletes failed this event, with only Jon Andersen and Zydrunas succeeding in the event. Jon won the event with 10 repetitions, and Zydrunas had 4 repetitions.

"The final event for day one was the farmer's walk and power stair medley. Zydrunas was first, with Derek Poundstone in second, followed by Travis Ortmayer in third.

"Day two starts tonight at 7 p.m. with four more events to go."
