Check out the 2012 World’s Strongest Man Keg Toss (40 – 55 lbs Kegs).
Definitely one of my favorite events to watch.
First off, here is Mikhail Koklyaev.
While trying to launch the kegs into low earth orbit he annihilates the barrier.
This seems to have cost him the a spot in the finals (see finalists below).
Zydrunas Savickas won this event. 8 kegs in 19.12 secs.
Side View of Big Z.
Derek Poundstone with 8 in 21.47 secs for second place.

Apologies if this has been covered but is this being streamed anywhere? I hate knowing the results
No streams, no updates. WSM doesn’t get the internet.
isnt it usually televised in the uk around winter time?
Man, I laughed so hard in Misha’s video (“Break shit!!”). I know, scoring low points for this unforeseen event it’s a shame, but boy, he does have style! Misha is a funny guy at all times; too bad that he never gets the results (in competition) we youtubers expect from him. He is the portrayal of the classic strenght athlete. Go Misha!
In all his videos he really comes across as a guy you can hang out with. If somebody deserve a huge win, then it’s him.
