It was great show, albeit the cold weather created difficult conditions for the athletes. The audience was supportive as they did their best to keep warm while cheering on the competitors.

We want to congratulate Ben Ruckstuhl for his first Oktoberfest Bavarian Strongman Championship. We all wish him a speedy recovery. Also want to congratulate Didzis Zarins from Latvia for a strong second finish. Didzis was in first place going in to the last event. The time differential between 4 athletes placing the 4th stone was enough to propel Ben in to first place. Hopefully Didzis has an excuse to come to Canada again next year and join us again. Max Boudreault was strong all day and came in 3rd, for 24 years old, this athlete has many successful years ahead of him in this sport.

Thanks again to all our gracious sponsors , including KAL Tire, Kitchener Harley Davidson, Delta Hotel Waterloo, Forbes Waterloo Mazda, Crabby Joes restaurant, I-Nutrition-Mammonth Nutrition, Civilian Printing, and the City of Kitchener /BIA for their support!

Thanks also to all our many volunteers, The Dean of Entertainment, Rebecca and Nate for your RMT volunteer efforts.
