Nest of Giants

A great film from Vice.TV about Iceland's strongmen,  from Jon Pall Sigmarsson (who shed body weight for the WSM specifically to target the more athletic, speed- and endurance-oriented events) to the legend that is Magnus Ver Magnusson.

There is also an interesting aside looking at a new fitness trend taking off amongst Iceland's youth which builds upon a more functional application of strength (using strength oriented apparatus on an assault course).  JPS would be proud!
