Žydrūnas Savickas - "Big Z"


Žydrūnas Savickas (born July 15, 1975 in Biržai, Lithuania) is a powerlifter and professional strongman and is widely considered to be one of the greatest strongman competitors of all time,[3] and is the most decorated strongman competitor ever. He is the only modern strongman competitor to have won every major strongman competition, most notably the World's Strongest Man in 2009, 2010, & 2012, the Arnold Strongman Classic on six consecutive occasions from 2003–2008, the IFSA Strongman World Championships in 2005 & 2006, Fortissimus in 2009, the Strongman Champions League overall title in 2008 & 2012, the World Log Lift Championships in 2008, 2009, 2011 & 2012 and Europe's Strongest Man twice in 2010 & 2012.[3] He stands 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in) and competes at 175 kg (385 lb).[4] Zydrunas is often referred to by his nickname, "Big Z".

Powerlifting/Strongman career
Savickas first became interested in strength sports after watching a Lithuanian strongman contest on TV in 1989. Three years later he took part in that same strongman contest, and defeated a number of older and more experienced competitors. At age 17 Savickas began to train in powerlifting, and in his second powerlifting contest he broke all the Lithuanian records. He is the only Lithuanian to squat over 400 kg. In 1998 Savickas won his first Lithuania's Strongest Man contest, he would later go on to win this contest a total of 7 times. Savickas then competed in the 1998 and 2000 World's Strongest Man contests, but failed to qualify for the finals both times. He won the silver medal in the World powerlifting championship in Japan with a total of 1020 kg, just 2.5 kg behind Brad Gillingham.

2001-2008
A contest in the Faroe Islands in 2001 dealt Savickas a major setback, as he tore both patellar tendons during the conan's wheel event. Many believed that the extent of the injury meant that his career was over. However, nine months later Savickas won the Lithuanian powerlifting championships, and a short time later he also won the 2002 Lithuania's Strongest Man contest. Savickas would go on to finish in 2nd place at the 2002 World's Strongest Man in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He would finish in 2nd place 3 more times in 2003, 2004 and 2011, and 1st place at the 2009 and 2010 World's Strongest Man contests.
