“Mastodons in Holland: Coming Saturday,” SCL Director Marcel Mostert told IronMind today. Part of the 16-stage MHP Strongman Champions League (SCL) series, SCL Holland is slated for this coming Saturday (June 11) at 13.30 in Zelhem, Holland, so if you want to see the big and the strong, this is the place to be.
With Krszysztof Radzikowski injured, Canadian strongman start J-F Caron will wear the yellow leader shirt, Mostert said.
“Since the beginning of the Strongman Champions League, we can see an impressive list of winners and to win the SCL Holland is prestigious—no Dutch strongman has yet won it, because it’s for sure not easy,” Mostert said, and a quick look at the past winners proves his point:
- Zydrunas Savickas (2008)
- Mikhail Koklyaev (2009)
- Travis Ortmayer (2010)
- Laurence Shalaei (2011)
- Zydrunas Savickas (2012)
- Zydrunas Savickas (2013)
- Hafthor Bjornsson (2014)
- Grzegorz Shymanski (2015)
This will be a six-event competition and field will have 14 competitors, including:
- Gregorz Shymanski
- JF Caron
- Marius Lalas
- Sean O’Hagan
- Eric Dawson and
- Alex Moonen
“Maybe Gregorz Shymanski will be the only one who takes the title in a row like the big Z?,” said Mostert. “Watch it live in Holland, or on their On Demand channel at 14.00 hours.” And speaking of TV coverage, Mostert said that SCL contests are broadcast in 95 countries, worldwide.
