Strongman Competition


Ever seen a man carry 250 kilograms of hay bales?

Eight men have been competing in the Vortex Spas Strongman competition at Nelson’s A&P Show. Strongman events run on the hour for the entire weekend.

Yesterday’s final event, the Super Yolk is said to be the hardest.

The Super Yolk sees competitors lift and carry a metal frame loaded up with 250 kilograms of hay bales. The yolk is carried for 25 meters and the fastest man wins.

Event organizer, Luke Slotemaker, secured his lead with an impressive win in the Super Yolk event, now at the top of the leaderboard with 26.5 points.
