Hirvonen has done a 210 Wilks point bench. Who can beat that?

I know Danny Thurman, Adam Mamola, Tim Anderson, Dennis Cieri, and Anton Kraft. But who is this Marcus Hirvonen??? I'm not trying to be ignorant but who has heard of him compared to the other guys? Is he like the Jutin Timerlake of PL in Norway or what???

Marcus is World champion 2008 , he did many world record and he had the highest Wiilks point in IPF history.....

I'm not sure who put that I could get a 210 wilks but I myself know I can't bench near 700 at 181 in IPF conditions. I need to hit 600 first. Thanks. Looking forward to the Arnold.

First of all, I have NOT done 210 wilks point. The correct number is 201. Also, this was done at a local meet last year where I got lucky. In my last 8 meets I have only hit 700 or more on two occasions and in my two meets this year my best bench is 661. I would put my money on Horace Lane for the highest wilks on the Arnold Bench. He could probably hit a new wr if he has a good day. I might also do that, but I´m having some issues with my shirt so my expectations are pretty low. But I´m looking forward to coming to the Arnolds, it´s a fun meet and the Swedish lifters are staying in the US after the meet for some vacation time and that´s always nice!

It will be a battle between Minke, Anton, Markus and Marcus If they preform like last year.
