Video of Fingal’s Fingers – Hafthor vs. Lauri Nami
Info from a competitor.
Truckpull just over.
Something is wrong, first 2 did not start it. Nick is good in truck pull and did not get it started. I did it half the way, it had the brake on or something, first time that I don’t finish a truck pull.
Then Lauri who is not good at truck pull did it almost all the way.
Next group had the same problem, the lightest competitor ran with it hehe.
Per Gunnar reports that Misha is a little concerned because he has some pain in his left pecs.
Video of Hafthor winning the loading race.
