With overall result of 61,5 points American Eric Dawson won the latest round of Strongman Champion Series in England. This is his second victory for the season and it looks like the big boy form Hubertus, Wisconsin is about to become the sensation of SCL 2016.
Dawson took the leadership early in the competition after he finished first in two very tough disciplines - “Hercules hold with cars” and “Stone of steel lift”. As a reward for his hearty game, Eric set a new world record in “Stone of steel lift” alongside with his fellow Bulgarian athlete Stoyan Todorchev. Needless to say, the local public was filled with awe when they witnessed how the two Strongmen overpowered the immensive challenge of 183 kg.
Till the end of the tournament Eric Dawson managed to keep his scores high, leaving no chance to Martin Wildauer from Austria who finished second, but far behind with 10 points less than the winner. Mateusz Baron from Poland took third place with only one point ahead of Stoyan Todorchev who last month won the round of Strongman Champion Series in Bulgaria.
The next edition of SCL will take place in Finland on 20/21 August. MLO wishes good luck and a whole bunch of new world records to all the Strongmen who will be there.
