“Last weekend, in the MHP Strongman Champions League Czech, the Polish star Krzysztof Radzikowski took a double victory,” Marcel Mostert reported to IronMind.
He won the SCL Czech in a field of 14 athletes and conquered again the SCL Leader shirt, whic he will start with in Holland at 22 June.
Krzysztof did really great and left Vytautas Lalas, second, and Lauri Nami, third, behind.
Ervin Katona got fourth and lost his leader shirt, but he did a new world record on the Power Team Forward Hold: He held 30 kg in a time of 72.23 seconds, and he was very pleased with that.
Ervin could have been in the top three, but the last event (Conan Wheel) hurt his knees too much as he has an old injury there, and that cost him a lot of points.
“Our co-organizer George Patendis from Face-Czech did a great job with this fantastic event and we will be back next year in Czech,” said Mostert.
