Maailman vahvimmat someottelussa – Eddie Hall pahoittelee sanomisiaan mutta teksti Björnssonin suuntaan on edelleen kylmää

Maailman vahvimmat eli vuonna 2018 Maailman vahvin mies -kisan voittanut Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson sekä samaisen tittelin vuotta aikaisemmin voittanut Eddie Hall ottavat toisistaan mittaa lehdistön ja somen välityksellä.

Björnsson aikoo rikkoa maastavedon maailmanennätyksen, joka on Eddie Hallin hallussa.

Hall ihmettelee islantilaisen ratkaisua – ennätyskoe tehdään miehen omalla salilla ja Björnssonin omilla painoilla.

Samassa yhteydessä Hall totesi, ettei luota islantilaisiin. Luottamuspula johtuu lähinnä voimamieskisoissa nähdyn käytöksen johdosta – Björnssonin tiimi on ”valittanut ja itkenyt kovaaan ääneen” joka asiasta. Tavoitteena hyödyn saaminen Björnssonille.

Hall on jatkanut vuodatustaan somessa. Hall pahoittelee sanomisiaan, tavallaan.

Mies painottaa, että luottamuspula islantilaisiin kohdistuu ainoastaan Björnssoniin ja hänen tiimiinsä. Hall syyttää islantilaista voimamiestä epäurheilijamaisesta käytöksestä ja ottaa esille esimerkin, jossa mainitaan toinen islantilainen voimamieslegenda Magnus Ver Magnusson.

Hall ei epäile Björnssonin kykyjä – mies todennäköisesti pystyy rikkomaan ennätyksen. Mutta saadakseen Hallilta ja suurimmalta osalta maailmaa respektiä, ennätyskoe tulisi tehdä valvotuissa oloissa yleisön läsnäollessa.

‼️PRESS RELEASE ‼️ Firstly & most importantly, I would like to apologise for my comment in a live Youtube Q&A where I said I didn’t trust the Icelandics; LINK IN BIO↖️ a very poor choice of words when put on the spot. In reality this couldn’t be further from the truth, I was specifically referring to Thor & his entourage that accompany him to every competition. You’ll not see this from the public’s perspective or on TV, but their attitude & behaviour is generally intimidation & bullying if even the smallest thing doesn’t go Thor’s way. Talk about unsportsmanlike like and unprofessional behaviour, you’ve got it right here. • At WSM 2017 Thor would not accept a certain referees decision on a certain event (Swipe left). He called into disrepute the judging skills of a referee which was then looked at by 3 referees & the decision was given to the legend that is Magnus Ver Magnusson who stood his ground and has since been appointed head referee at WSM, but now Thor will take his word as golden to be the judge at his 501kg deadlift attempt, talk about hypocrisy? He’ll drag his name through mud or place it upon a pedestal to suit his objective. • Because of the malicious rumours Thor & his team started I’ve endured years of people questioning what is the crowning achievement of my career. Well guess what pal, you break my record in your home gym with a bunch of your pals, you’re going to get the same treatment. • Absolutely no legitimate sport would acknowledge World Records broken out of competition & you are undermining the very sport you are claiming to champion. • I genuinely look forward to having my record broken & seeing what is possible. I think you are probably the man to do it, there’s no denying that & I’ll still shake your hand afterwards and say well done… if you do it under the appropriate conditions. For the record I feel the same way about the other “records” that are being attempted, it just doesn’t feel right & there are 1000s of strength fans & athletes that feel the same way. • Break a record in a comp where other people can contest it & no one will have a negative word to say, including myself. #SetAnExample #BackUpYourBull 👈 Big Love THE BEAST
