It?s official, that as the top four finishers at the WSMSS Mohegan Sun Grand Prix, Mariusz Pudzianowski, Kevin Nee, Mark Felix and Jason Bergmann will receive invitations to the 2007 MET-Rx World?s Strongest Man contest.
WSMSS Tour Director Jesper Albansson said that the Mohegan Sun Grand Prix ?was an incredible event where the athletes really kept pushing each other. Kevin was on Mariusz?s heels throughout the event and Mark Felix looked incredibly good. Jason Bergman and Marshall White where both putting on a great show, all in the favor of the crowd of 4000 . . . A new record!?
Really spotlighting the young talent, Albansson said, ?Jason entered his first big Grand Prix and qualified for WSM . . . That’s impressive!? and he added, ?We are really happy to see that America is producing so many young and able athletes. It will be interesting to see what will come out of the rest of the tour.?
?New Canadian Louis-Philippe Jean look impressive in his first big competition but a few wrong moves spoiled the day for him. Expect to see big things from him in the future,? added Albansson.
? This is becoming a classic strongman event unlike no other,? Albansson said enthusiastically. ?This proves the the Super Series and Mohegan Sun are a perfect match.?
The Mohegan Sun Grand Prix also provided a stage for introducing WSMSS merchandise, Albansson told IronMind. ?We sold out at Mohegan,? Albansson said, but just in case you weren?t there or couldn?t get the shirt you wanted, Albansson said you can still get one of the limited edition shirts from the newly-opened Super Series store: www.super-series.com .
