Just a day before the exciting World’s Ultimate Strongman competition begins on October 25, in Dubai; the World’s Ultimate Deadlift competition took place with Rauno Heinla from Estonia prevailing victorious over a tough lineup with a 450kg/992lb deadlift. And boy… did he make it look easy!
Check it out below…
The caption read… “Estonian champion Rauno Heinla winning the title in today’s 450 kg deadlift championship, beating his colleagues At Burj Plaza opposite Burj Khalifa. See you tomorrow, Friday, as we continue the World’s Ultimate Strongman at Meydan Hotel”
This was a well-deserved win for Heinla and it was apparent he could have pulled even more weight. And hopefully, this is a preview of big things to come from the Estonian.

Hafthor Bjornsson was the inaugural World’s Ultimate Strongman champion last year. But he’s already said that he’ll not be participating this year. Plus, the 2019 World’s Strongest Man winner Martins Licis had to pull out due to recovering from an injury.
So, it’ll be up to the rest of the competitors to put on a show and we’re expecting some big performances with a prize of $75,000.
But be sure to tune in as it’ll be an exhilarating event with many of the biggest names in Strongman. And we’ll be on top of the latest details after the conclusion of the competition.
