Timo – The Man with Strong Middle Fingers
By Al Myers
I can’t complete my epitome on the Middle Fingers Deadlift without mentioning the BEST Middle Finger Deadlifter in IAWA history. This man is the Finland Strongman, Timo Lauttamus. Timo has been a regular in IAWA international competitions these past few years. Anyone who has been to recent Worlds and Gold Cups know him. He has been putting on amazing shows at Gold Cups with the strength he has in his fingers.
Timo hold the TOP IAWA World Record in the Middle Fingers Deadlift with an astounding lift of 183 kilograms (403 pounds). This was done in front of several witnesses and top level IAWA officials at the 2014 Gold Cup in Burton Upon Trent, England. I was glad that I was there to see it as well! Timo at the time was 35 years old and weighed in at 98.7 kilograms.
Often when saying someone in the best at something all time it is a debatable issue. This is not the case with Timo and his Middle Finger Deadlifting in IAWA. I can’t see anyone arguing with me on this!
