Interview with Jiri Tkadlčík
This month’s I had the utmost privilege of speaking with one of the the world’s best Under 105kg Strongman Athletes. And also my good friend Jiri Tkadlčík from Czech Republic! Jiri and myself have known each other for the past three years. We have also crossed paths and competed alongside each other at the Arnolds South Africa and Loket, Czech Republic.
This time he has made the long and arduous journey of flying in to sunny Singapore from the cold winter of Czech Republic! He has also put his name down to compete in the inaugural Asia Pacific Deadlift Championships 2018. Jiri is also the World Record Holder for the Deadlift with a previous record of 382kg successfully attempted in Ukraine in 2017!
The Singapore Experience
In this video, he talks a little bit about the strongman scene in Czech Republic. His new discovery of proper Asian Cuisine and his hopes for himself and the sport in Czech Republic.
We also talked if he would attempt to break his own world record at the Asia Pacific Deadlift Championships in Singapore… He was feeling rather conservative that day!
And of course being good hosts, we brought him and Valerie out and about in Singapore where no tourists would go for the full on local experience.
We hope that you enjoy watching this video as much as we had fun bringing him out in Singapore
