Not only a world-class strongman but also a pretty damn fine arm wrestler. If there’s one thing that can be said about Samuelsson its that he sports some impressive staying power. The man has reached the World’s Strongest Man finals a record-breaking ten times – managing to sieze the title itself in 1998.
Retiring in 2008 Samuelsson was quoted as saying “never say never” when asked about a possible return. Here’s hoping, but we fear he might be a little long in the tooth to do any damage on the strongman scene nowadays – as much as we would love to see it!
