When: November 2013
Venue: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
SCL Grand Finals Kuala Lumpur – 11th Place – 2013
Strongman Champions League World Ranking – #49 in 2013/2014
This competition came as a surprise because I was the top ranked strongman athlete in South East Asia and the Strongman Champions League was being held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I was given a wildcard invite to compete in a “professional” level strongman competition. I’ve had the privilege of competing on the same stage with Mike Burke, Zydrunas Savickas, Hafthor Bjornson just to name a few. There were 15 athletes in total and I finished 11th place and it was a humbling experience but I was on track to being in competing in bigger strongman competitions. I also finished the year in 49th place out of 80 in the global strongman rankings. Which was the first time ever I had an official ranking. The only way is up!
