IdeaPark, Finland—Making a big splash in his Strongman Champions League (SCL) debut, Vitautas Lalas (Lithuania) edged out Laurence Shahlaei for the win.Vitautas Lalas dropped the hammer in the Loading Race and never looked back.
Vitautas Lalas finished with 57 points, followed by Laurence Shahlaei at 56.6 points and Ervin Katona at 52.5 points.“The fifth stage of the SCL was again a successful competition,” said SCL cofounder Marcel Mostert. “It was a tough competition, with 35-degree (C) temperatures inside—there is no air conditioning in Finland!
“Ervin Katona keeps the orange T-shirt,” said Mostert, referring to the what marks the overall leader of the season, “and the SCL continues next week in Holland.”
“Nice events,” said Jyrki Rantanen, “with quite a nice level in the deadlift and 187.5 kg on the log is not something we see too often in Finland.”
