He finished the competition with 48.5 points, leaving behind the overall champion from 2019 - Aivars Smaukstelis (46.5 points) and Mika Torro (44 points). One of the focal points of this stage in Norway was the 35-years old deadlift record that is now history since a several strongman athletes were able to overcome it.
