Ireland’s Strongest Man places 6th overall and pulls 520KG in Uzbekistan
Ireland’s Strongest Man Pa O’Dwyer finishes 6th overall in Uzbekistan. This is a remarkable achievement for Pa who has already performed on international stages this year at the UK Strongest Man finishing 3rd, 2nd with Team Ireland in the Ultimate Strongman Battle of Britain and representing Team Celts in the Ultimate Strongman Team World Championship. This competition was another performance to add to this collection with Pa finishing a respectful 6th out of 14 competitors from all over the world. The first event was the log lift and with strong pressers in the line up Pa finished 12th in this event. The next event was the Viking Press where he finished 7th. The third event was the deadlift. This was the event which Pa made a name for himself in Uzbekistan. He outclassed the rest of the field by winning the event with 520KG, just 4 KG off the World Record! The final event was the overhead medley. Pa managed to press the 110KG block, 140KG Axle and the 140KG Axle which placed him 3rd in the discipline. Again, the ISA would like to congratulate Pa on this achievement and wish him well in his preparation for his events in 2018.
