Mariusz Pudzianowski ROBBED!

Mariusz Pudzianowski Robbed at Venice Beach Super Series and was absolutely fuming

The heading says it all, he was a clear leader going into the last event stones, almost unbeatable and guess what the American organisers had introduced a new rule ... DOUBLE points for the last event!

Mariusz made a slip on the stones and his lead evaporated and conveniently a stone specialist American took top spot.

These are the facts as I know them and if so, THIS DOES A HUGE DISCREDIT TO OUR SPORT.

Have a look at the podium (courtesy of http://viking.mobilblogg.no) .... a picture speaks a 1000 words

    The way you put it doesn't make it sound like the american deserved to win, and I agree with you.

    1st David Ostlund
    2nd Mariusz
    3rd Jesse Marunde

    Dave O is very very good on stones and was clearly in great shape but if you look at the picture he doesn't look overjoyed at the win.

    People were already concerned about this comp. because its a qualifier for Worlds Strongest Man and was billed as an international comp. The trouble was it stacked full of Americans.

    Mariusz lost WSM2006 on stones last year. He's not the tallest guy in the world 6'1" so the tall guys like Dave O have an advantage on the higher platforms. I just think the whole double points thing was a way to engineer an American winner on american soil so all the american spectators can munch on their burger and fries while patting themselfs on the back.

    Any opportunity for a 'USA USA' chant.

    Was the rule made before the contest and known about, although it's stupid rule it would be unfair to say he was robbed if that was clearly set out in the rules from the beginning.

    Is the stone lift considered the toughest and was it established ALONG time ago?

    I think there is some suggestion that it was only brought to the attention of the competitors shortly before the stones. Whatever way you look at it, its wrong .... the stones is not worth double the points of say farmers walk or log press. It's just a very cynical way to make it TV friendly for the Yanks.

    Next there will be an event that involves an english test worth triple points at the end. That should really sort out those pesky strong europeans and their foreign gobbledegoop

    The rule was new and no stones isn't the toughest event they should be treated equal

    Thia seems very strange.

    Isnt this exactly what happened at WSM last year? Marius and Fister were close, and marius slipped as he ran for the stones (there wasnt the points thing though) Fister won the title.

    Are you saying this happened again?

    Perhaps marius would have been better to stay on his feet as it seems to be problem for him!

    what a fcuking joke!! ALL the lifts should have equal points, I'd like to see how they justify giving the stones double points...........they did this to Mariusz a few years ago when he he failed a drug test (yeah like the rest are drug free?) and stripped him of his world ranking and points.........if strongman goes the same way as bodybuilding, ie: geared towards a predominant American market, then there is no hope in the world.

    How much are they on then ? you sound like you know a lot about this subject


    I'll save you the bother of replying , the truth is your post is speculative garbage - Strongman is more about genetic freakiness and hard work than it is about huge amounts of gear
    Not saying they are all natural , but I'd bet there are a lot of 13 stone no hopers in gyms all over the country taking MORE than your average strongman , OK , you'll get a few that maegadose (like bodybuilding) - but many of them dont NEED huge doses because of their genetics
    Although I realise some people will never be convinced of this and think drugs make the world go around , If you want to go on thinking that , then fine - but you are deluded

    Yes , this whole situation is ridiculous !

    I only wish Mariusz had won the stones and made it backfire on them

    Having said that , I bet Mariusz won't lose any sleep over it ! - and probably feels complimented in a funny kind of way - ...it says a lot if that is what it takes to beat him
