World Log Lift Championship

This weekend saw the World’s Log Lifting Championships take place in Lithuania. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to find out that it was won by the country’s own Zydrunas Savickas. Perhaps more surprising was Big Z’s failed attempt at, another, new world record of 221kg. We can probably excuse him though as it is so close after his win at the World’s Strongest Man competition.

Top three:

  1. Zydrunas Savickas – 210kg
  2. Krzysztof Radzikowski – 207.5kg
  3. Vytautas Lalas – 200kg

There was a notable absence in Mike Jenkins who was apparently invited but declined due to the proximity to the WSM 2012 final.
