Mariusz Pudzianowski (31 yo) after incredible fight won 5th title of World's Strongest Man - nobody had achieved it before. "Dominator" won it and after this season he is going to retire

- I lifted enough in my whole life. I will compete once more on some contest, but it'll be only exhibition/show. Now there is time on personal life, parties - he said in interview with "Super Express" (polish newspaper)

He was fighting with all his strength for the transition to a history. After Plane Pull, Mariusz lost his breath and oxygen mask was needed.

- There have been no wind in me, but I couldn't forgive and that's the reason I'm World's Strongest Man again - Pudzianowski points.

unexpected!

Maybe she's pretty and you're ugly? Just a thought. Maybe you caught him before or after the contest when he was still in contest mode.

Yeah I've heard nothing but great things about the guy as a person.

He's doing it the right way, going out on top. He's already made history as the best ever so he doesn't have anything else to prove. Still, it will be a big loss for the strength community and WSM.

Kaz, on the other hand was not cool.

i used to think he looked pretty intimidating, but his music video took a little of that intimidation factor away, LOL

I love Kaz. He came accross the room to say hi and shake my hand at the New England Record Breakers in front of a whole bunch of lifters. Now that was a very cool moment. I heard Pudz was a douche. I think it's all relevant to the person, place, and time.

I dont think anyone should go on a public forum and call someone as high profile as Mariusz or Kaz a dick.How can you judge someone from a couple seconds?Unless you hang out with them on a daily basis,you cant.These guys have alot of people that look up to them and want to meet them one day,and to publicly make derogatory statements about them is uncool in my book.

I've never met Pudz, but my experiences with Kaz haven't really left me with a positive opinion of him

Just my experience though. It was at the Arnold around the powerlifting and Kaz doesn't hold a very high opinion of geared lifting. We all have opinions I guess

and I agree with Lones. That video is really odd LOL I know that kind of music is really popular in Europe but I still think its weird

that video is funny as hell. He should kick his managers ass for making him look like a homo. and yes I replayed the video so maybe I have tendencies.

i drove Kaz 3hrs to Chicago after a contest. He's a great guy and extremely knowledgeable.

I was a big fan of the guy until the Arnold in 06.
He is a legend of the sport. I respect him as an amazing
lifter.
