Competitions in Sabah, Malaysia has always been special to me because it was the first time I’ve competed in a purist strongman event with stones and car deadlift. In 2011 and 2012 I won back to back competitions winning 4 out 6 events in 2012 just to prove a point that 2011 was not a fluke! There has been a saying in strongman “You are only a champion, when you win 2 titles!”. In 2013 I came in tied for 1st place with 50 points, but I came in 2nd by technical countback. Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some. Winning back to back competitions earned me a spot in my first international strongman competition in Hungary.
