On June 27, 2020, the Omsk hero Mikhail Shivlyakov will try to set a record in the “Deadlift” in the category of masters live. The event will take place as part of Feats of Strength, a world series of self-isolation competitions organized by World’s Ultimate Strongman. A number of similar online competitions have already taken place.
The rival of the strongest Russian athlete, winner and prize-winner of international tournaments in extreme power, Mikhail Shivlyakov, will be Terry Hollands, holder of the title “The Strongest Man of Great Britain”.
The competition will be held among the masters, that is, the age of the participants is 40 and more years. World strong mastodons will fight for an attempt to beat the already existing result in this category – 430 kg.
In addition to local referees, the athletes will be judged by an experienced judge, the most titled strongman of our time, Zydrunas Savickas from Lithuania. Online record is a new format of competition for power extreme, and it was first tested a couple of months ago. So, a Siberian, being in Omsk, and an Englishman – in Great Britain – will arrange a competition and will watch each other through the monitor screen.
According to the rules of the event, each athlete will have to make three attempts to set the record live.
