If you are new to strength sports and strongman here is some history about 4 times World Strongest Man Magns Ver Magnusson.
" Magnús Ver Magnússon first turned his talents towards powerlifting, winning European and World championships.
In 1985 Magnús began competing in strongman. He won his first World's Strongest Man title in 1991 and then another 3 times. Magnús won many other strongman titles, including Iceland's strongest man numerous times and the West coast Viking (Vestfjarðavíkingurinn) of Iceland 9 times.
Magnús spent his career making sure he was not only the strongest statically, but the quickest and most dynamic.
In 2019 after not competing for 14 years, Magnús awed crowds by setting a phenomenal time of 101.2seconds on the hercules hold.
Magnús frequently judges strongman competitions and has a reputation for being a firm and fair referee. He owns the world famous Jakaból (nest of giant's) gym in Kópavogur Iceland."
