  • Congrats to Thor but honestly Mateuszs performance was much more impressive. Take out deadlifting and Thor would not have won. I think Mateusz is the strongest as of now aside from the deadlift.

  • Mateusz won 4 events and set 2 World Records in the process (Wheel of Pain, Timber Carry, 7 seconds!!). If Mateusz could improve his deadlift, he would beat Hafthor. It is the only thing holding him back, he wins explosive Strength/speed/strength endurance events every time, he reminds me of Mariusz Pudzianowski. He just need to get better in Squat and Deadlift, eliminate your weaknesses and you can win a lot of strongman contests.

    • @Germanischer Krieger his deadlift increased in recent years and so did his speed. If your logic was correct this wouldn't be possible. You can train multi-level athleticism to a certain degree. He can't lift 1000 pounds without adding mass no but he can at least get to 950. That would be enough to place in the midfield. He is at 886 PB right now which is too low.

    • Korosh Rostami Nobody understand Strongman of you... when he will get a better deadlift he must gain more wheight which mean that he lose speed you can’t be fast and strong

    • @Magic Potato I have followed Thors NOworld since the start, and he said he was going to do it if he felt like he had it in him. That was after his 380 RAW. He also said it pre-deadlift on Arnolds day 2, to the lady-interviewer when she asked. So many were hyped about the attempt that never happened

      TNM001TNM0019 måneder siden
    • No one could have done 501kg after 3 events, not even your beloved eddie. Also he wanted to win the competition, he already won deadlift, there was no need to go any higher, would have only increase the potential of an injury and perfoming poorly in the later event. And he will do it in WUS with the same set up as eddie, why do it now when its the First event there?

  • If I was Eddie Hall I would be a little annoyed that Thor is planning to break his record by just 1kg... Since Eddie increased the world record by a significant amount. But I'm sure Eddie doesn't care, he has more important things to worry about, like trying overcome his terrible dehydration.

    Kev MaxflyKev Maxfly9 måneder siden
    • @Kev Maxfly nah I totally get what you mean it must be annoying because it isnt that someone is necessarily better but more on the same level. Eddie wanted the record to be broken by more than 1 but ofc you would so you no one beats it for longer.

      Ben Extinction__14Ben Extinction__149 måneder siden
    • Sorry, was not trying to make it look like no one else beats records by 1kg or that it should be frowned upon that Thor is about to do it. Was just commenting on how I suspect a current record holder may feel after crushing the previous record himself, but like people have pointed out here, I am probably incorrect, and Eddie should not be bothered since what Thor is doing is the norm - and I would imagine since Eddie knows what it took to get to 500 he will have a ton of respect for anyone who gets there.

      Kev MaxflyKev Maxfly9 måneder siden
    • What's up with the Eddie fanboys constantly bitching about the 1kg increase?.... A record is a record.

      McBaronMcBaron9 måneder siden
    • Dont make this look like it is just thor doing this. Eddie tried to break two records (axle and log I think) by 1kg himself. Luke stoltman broke the stone lift record by 2lbs here on Friday and mark felix broke the donny stone lift record by 0.04ish seconds on friday too.

    • @Chrontard yeah cause the jump was so crazy and absurd, and Eddie hadnt pulled anything close to it. Thats why its such an impactful and one of a kind lift. If thor said he was gonna pull 535kg, we'd probably have the same reaction

    • @McBaron which also shows how good Mateusz is, because he needed 3 attempts in deadlift and in 2nd and 3rd he used all the power he had fighting with the bounce and weight for quite a long time. Thor on the other hand barely broke a sweat. Still Mateusz recovered so well to use his legs and back again in frame carry and beat the record.

      BartekSWTBartekSWT9 måneder siden
    • @BartekSWT Maybe because it's a really tough event. Especially when it's the 5th event. Similar to how nobody was pulling deadlifts like they did last year when the deadlift was the first event.

      McBaronMcBaron9 måneder siden
    • @McBaron I understand 66kg in deadlift is a lot, but it's the same or even more for doing timber carry in 7 sec and not being able to do it at all in 36 sec. Thor was just lucky, that there was more competitors weak in timber carry.

      BartekSWTBartekSWT9 måneder siden
    • @BartekSWT Thor beat Mateusz by 66 kg's in the deadlift. That's a monstrous amount. That's why there were so many competitors between the two of them.

  • Congratulations to Thor. But this competition highlights the inconsistencies with the strongman points system and some changes are needed for next year

    YahwehYahweh9 måneder siden
    • There should be predetermined points for hitting targets in each event, like they did in the trial by stone, that get added together over the whole competition. This would still take into account a weak performance in one event but in a fairer way. The current system is completely dependent on the performance of other competitors. For example, if Maxime Boudreault had competed today instead of Rob Kearney, Mateusz probably would have won despite there being no difference in his and Thor's performance.

      YahwehYahweh9 måneder siden
    • Yahweh how can points get any fairer? Finish 1st out of 10 men you get 10 points. Finish 10th out of 10 men you get 1 point. 1 point for every spot you finish better in. How can it be fairer than that? yes mateusz did great and win 4 events but his deadlift was not up to par with the likes of Thor and others. Also his bag over bar wasn’t the greatest so he lost HUGE points in these two whilst Thor kept in the top few every single evemt
