Meet the World’s Strongest Man

Oleksi Novikov has won the World’s Strongest Man competition.

Novikov beat all competitors and set a new world record of 537kg for a partial deadlift in the process.

Novikov, 24, is the youngest person since 1984 to win the World’s Strongest Man competition. In addition, he is just the second event winner to hail from Ukraine.

The highlight of Novikov’s victory was his performance in the partial deadlift event. The Ukrainian native lifted the 537kg bar an estimated 18 inches off the ground. That beat a previous world record that was set in 1983.
