Evan Singleton Wins 2021 World Open Championship (Full Results)

Evan Singleton came out on top in England against some other major competitors in the World.

The 2021 World Open and World Deadlift Championship took place on Aug. 14 in Manchester, England. Giants Live hosted the event for strongman competitors to earn qualification to the 2022 World’s Strongest Man. In the end, it was Evan Singleton who was crowned champion.

Singleton stood at the top of the podium as Adam Bishop finished as the runner-up and 2020’s World’s Strongest Man Oleksii Novikov came in third place. The top three finishers in the competition earned qualification to the 2022 World’s Strongest Man. For Bishop, this was his chance. Singleton and Novikov already qualified by finishing as the top two in the 2021 Strongman Classic.

Evan Singleton earned 43 points while Bishop finished with 40.5 and Novikov earned 39.5. Singleton won two of the five events at the competition.

It began with a stellar performance in the Carry and Drag Medley. Singleton logged a time of 27.38 seconds. Next, it was the Viking Press that was dominated by Singleton. He pressed 160kg (352lb) 12 times. Singleton turned in other strong performances by finishing tied for second in the Max Deadlift and third in the Castle Stones.
