Strongest Man & Woman of Aruba

The fourth edition of the Strongest Man of Aruba competition at MooMba Beach was a huge success. It started Friday, October 4, ending with the finals on Sunday, October 6—three evenings of showcasing sheer willpower, incredible strength, trembling muscles, bulging biceps, and other well-trained body parts. The contenders were challenged by elements like the Barrel Throw, Truck Pull, Stone Run, Yoke Carry, and Tire Flip.

The overall winner of the competition is Aruban-born Ryan Schuitema. First runner-up is Jerrel Geerman and second runner-up is his brother, Jeremy Geerman, who won last year’s edition. In the women’s category, there was one person who stood out incredibly: Jennifer Piter. The reigning champion triumphed over her competition with an impressive showcase of strength.
