2020 Arnold Strongman Classic – Cyr Dumbbell | Recap

Extended highlights from Event 6 of the 2020 Arnold Strongman Classic, the iconic Cyr Dumbbell, as re-broadcast on the CBS Sports Network. In this final challenge of the weekend, the competitors have 2 minutes to establish the heaviest dumbbell press, with weights ranging from 274 LBS to 320 LBS. Heaviest lift wins the event, but as far as the winner’s circle goes, the neck-and-neck battle between defending champ Hafthor Bjornsson and Mateusz Kieliszkowski could be decided by who does “just enough” to clinch it.

The 2020 Arnold Classic took place the weekend of March 6-7 in Columbus, Ohio, and brought together 10 of the most accomplished Strongman athletes from around the world to compete in six events. Due to early Covid-19 safety protocols, the competition was held without live spectators. For additional coverage, final standings, and full event recaps from the 2020 Arnold, visit
