Here is Zydrunas Savickas at the SCL Event in Trzebnica, Poland.
He and Mikhail Koklyaev tied, something that only happened once before in strongman history.
Anyway, I wanted to show you this keg toss event.
- 8 kegs total
- 2×16 kg, 2×18 kg, 2×20 kg, 2×22 kg
- to be thrown over a 5m barrier
- for time
Savickas took it with a time of 17.13 sec. Misha (who once set the high throw record) came in second with 20.04 sec.
Full extension, watch the explosiveness!
Moral of the Story: throw something heavy around this weekend.
Thanks to Adam for bringing this to my attention.
I wonder what Savickas could have done in Olympic lifting had he focused on that? Pretty inspiring to watch!
One can only guess, but I wouldn’t be suprised to see him at the Olympics.
Was this televised?
I think easertn European Eurosport televise the SCL events.
Check out this channel, it has some of this years past recordings. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGHu7wOkq_d5Pt_ZTDEHipQ/videos
