Men vs machines: Russians show their strength

To win, each man had to lift a car, weighing 405 kilograms, and carry it as far as they can.

Next, they have to pull a truck, its gear in neutral, to a distance of 20 metres using a thick rope.

And finally, they have to carry a giant rubber tyre weighing 100 kilograms back to the start line.

This year's contest was held without any cheering spectators as COVID-19 restrictions prevented gathering of crowds.

Twenty-two-year-old Dmitry Skosyrsky from Omsk got the top prize.
