Strongest Man of the Netherlands
|Month played||July (on a Saturday)|
Strongest Man of the Netherlands (Dutch: Sterkste Man van Nederland) is an annual strongman competition held in the Netherlands and featuring exclusively Dutch athletes. The contest was established in 1979, with Gerard Du Prie winning the inaugural contest. Berend Veneberg and Jarno Hams hold the record for most wins with 7. Ted van der Parre holds 3 wins, and Ab Wolders and Gerard Du Prie each have 2 wins in the contest.
Jarno Hams lost in 2014 for the first time in ten years and became 4th. A few times he did not participate, but he was the undisputed champion. In 2015, the 7-time champion wanted to try one last time to become the only man to win 8 times, but Hams got injured just before the match, so another man took his place in the event.
