Radzikowski had a hard act to follow in the wake of his fellow countryman Pudzianowski who dominated the strongman scene for so many years. Granted, Radzikowski hasn’t quite yet managed to replicate such success but he’s certainly having a damn good go at it! His static strength, including an ever increasing log press, currently at 217.5kg (480lbs), is ensuring steady podium positions in recent competitions. This impressive Log Press weight was achieved by Radzikowski in 2016 at The Arnold Strongman Classic event in Australia.
Krzysztof Radzikowski was Poland’s Strongest man in 2012 and 2013, since then he has gone on to become the overall winner within The Strongman Champions League earning himself a 1st place position. Throughout three competitions that took place in Germany, Finland and Turkey, Krzysztof Radzikowski earned himself the overall 1st place position. Radzikowski is also known as “The Polish Hulk” due to his sheer size and power!
