1. What place did you come in?
•I took first in the novice division.

2. What was your Favorite event?
•My favorite event was the Yoke/Sandbag. Yoke is my favorite event, and the sandbag carry is one of the few events where the power belly is a plus.

3. Did you have any PRs?
•I had a PR on deadlift of 550lbs, I had a rep PR on the 240 stone of 11.

4. How was your first strongman performance?
•I feel like I did ok. I was disappointed with my farmers performance and was hoping to get a couple of more reps on the dumbbell. I felt good as far as strength, but I see now that I need to work on speed and work capacity.

5. Were you satisfied with how ECWC prepared you?
•I felt very well-prepared heading into the competition. I have just recently started working with the Strongman crew on Saturdays, and it has really helped. The event training on Saturday’s is great. There is such a wealth of knowledge at ECWC.

6. Do you have any future strongman goals?
•My ultimate goal is to be able to compete at CSM. I need to get stronger, but I also need to lose weight so I can compete in the 230 class. The two don’t go well together, but that is what I am working towards.

7. What was your favorite part about competing?
•The camaraderie was my favorite. Even though it is a competition, everyone is still cheering and rooting for the other competitors.

8. What would you recommend to others who are interested in strongman?
•I do not think I am in much of a place to give advice, I have only competed in one competition. I guess I would say, try to surround yourself with people who know what they are doing. Find a group to train with that pushes you.

Legion competitor: Luke Mordarski

1. What place did you come in?

•First! In the light-weight mens division.

2. What was your Favorite event?

•Probably the circus dumbbell, mainly for that final rep haha. Farmers would be a close second though.

3. Did you have any PRs?

•455 traditional deadlift was a PR, I've done that weight Sumo, but this rep was waaaaaayy faster and cleaner. The farmers was a PR. While I did the same distance in training, because the distance at comp was shorter, I matched it but with an extra pick.

4. How was your first strongman performance?

•It was a realy great experience. My nerves and anxiety were minimal. In fact, I was less anxious than all the other Zombie/Strongest Troll comps in the past. I maintained a focus on solid technique above anything else. Most importanty, I was able to have fun.

5. Were you satisfied with how ECWC prepared you?

•Extremely.

6. Do you have any future strongman goals?

•I plan to compete in CSM and perhaps a few more shows in the future.

7. What was your favorite part about competing?

•The fact that I was able to go out and actually have fun, and enjoy being there.

8. What would you recommend to others who are interested in strongman?

•Definitely to join ECWC and focus on technique.
