. . . Žydrūnas Savickas . . .

Žydrūnas Savickas first became interested in strength sports after watching a Lithuanian strongman contest on TV in 1989.[2][8] 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. In his second powerlifting contest, he broke all the Lithuanian records.[9]

In 1998, Žydrūnas Savickas won his first Lithuania’s Strongest Man contest.[9] He would later go on to win this contest a total of 16 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 1,020 kg (2,250 lb),[3][10] just 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) behind Brad Gillingham.[11]
