No, it was the real top ten in the world on a 2 days competition, same as the world championship. with the big referee wearring his cowboy helmet !! lol
in 2003 the competition was really close between Hugo and Marius and at the the last events, Hugo beated Marius to finish first. the last event was the 2 big cylinder that you have to take in your hand and run a parcourt as fast as possible.
the 2 cylinders were the heaviest ever intented and everybody were dropping them 3-4-5 times in the parcourt but Hugo get his grip and ran the parcourt non stop without dropping the cylinder !! amazing grip !!
in 2004 Marius was no as good and he finished 4th.
hugo won the event also at the last events with the same ******* cylinder but this times he dropped them 1 time but his main opponent did worse by not being able to complete the parcourt. I don't remenber his name he was from uzbekistan i think
No, I think the win you are talking about from Hugo was the Strongman Super Series winner. And the top 4 competitors get an automatic bid to the Worlds Strongest Man competition. Hugo never won the Worlds Strongest Man, but did win the Super Series.
Too bad injuries have set back Hugo throughout his career.
