Comments: Congratulations to a great home page. I have been looking for a page like this for four years now. It is about time respect is paid to the greatest strength athletes ever. There has always been Bodybuilding and Powerlifting pages to look at, but now they can look at men who are not three lift athletes or are not pretty boys, but who know what it means to lift weights. WSM is the best thing going!!!

Name:Derek Webpage: From: Las Vegas Time: 14:52 Date: Sep 9, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: MagnusMagnusMagnusMagnusMagnusMagnusMagnus Comments: Magnus let Riku Kiri win the 97 Europe's Strongest Man only because he felt sorry for the guy, and because he is such a nice guy he wanted to share some of the titles besides WSM. Magnus could have easily won if he had wanted to. Magnus is going to get one for the thumb in Vegas!

Your strongmen are featured magazines such as Powerlifting U.S.A. and Milo. Again thank you very much for such agreat competition.
