Last week i was chatting with some powerlifting friends and we come on a question, which nation are the strongest, which one have the most strongman in their country? (i don't want to make war, ok it's just chatting)
I give you our conclusion.
- USA have a lot of strongman, normal because they have a lot of people in their country, and they have good easy informations or supplements. but i did not see a lot of american win, the strongest man, but in weightlifting and bodybuilding it seem to have a lot of world champ. And Paul Anderson for legend....just to name this one...
-Canadian, i'm one of them, we have a lot of strongman here in many strenght sport, we don't have big population. Just to name a big name, we have Hugo Girard, he won the super series a couple of years before. And in our strongman legend we had Louis Cyr. But i can't say that we are the strongest nation in the world, because we don't have a lot of 'official' strongman versus our population.
-Africa, i just know Bedenhorst who win the strongest man,....and i'm not shure he's totaly african!!!
-For the South america....???? not shure, maybe some world strongman.
-Chinese, Japonese, Vietnam.....(asian people, sorry for all of you, i can't make differance between a japonese or a chinese, maybe same thing for you between canadian and american!!!_)In asia they have a lot of good weight lifter, maybe some of the best in the world, little asian who are able to lift 25 times their weight (i'm kidding) it's tof to beat, or Sumo wrestler, but with the fact that they have a lot of folk in their country (1/3 of the world population) i don't give them the strongest palm for that reason. sorry
- North europe (bulgar, russian, Ukraine and all Pudzianowkfolk) I think, for my part that their are the STRONGEST nation of the world. Here my reason:
1-They win almost all of strongest man contest, Think about Pud, Ahola, Sagmuelson, Sigmerson....the list is long.
2-We always have a name who sound like Vicking old name in the olympic top 3. 3-In fighting same things,
4-Armwrestling to (but american are really strong in that)
That's my opinion, maybe your are different.
Don't be racism, be fair!!! It's just to chat...
