Oleksii Novikov Wants To Break His Hummer Tire Deadlift World Record By Over 51 Kilograms (112 Pounds)


In many ways, 2022 will be a year to remember for Oleksii Novikov. The prolific Ukrainian strongman stood atop the podium on three separate occasions at the 2022 Europe’s Strongest Man (ESM), Giants Live Strongman Classic (GLSC), and Strongman Rogue Invitational (RI). Additionally, the former World’s Strongest Man (WSM) champion (2020) set a new all-time Hummer Tire Deadlift World Record of 549 kilograms (1,210 pounds) at the 2022 Shaw Classic. Some may be satisfied with such a resume for the whole career, more than one year. Novikov doesn’t have a wired approach. He has done nothing but put the pedal to the metal and move on to the next challenge.

On January 16, 2023, Novikov posted a Q&A video on the English version of his YouTube channel, breaking down his future plans for the 2023 calendar year. Among the more notable revelations is that Novikov will attempt to establish his Hummer Tire Deadlift World Record by successfully pulling. 600 kilograms (1,322.7 pounds) in the next iteration of the Shaw Classic, on August 19-20, 2023. This score will be a a whopping 51 kilograms (112.3 pounds) to his current record performance.

In discussing why he wants to extend his Hummer Tire Deadlift record by a surprising amount, Novikov noted that he did not prepare much before the pull in 2022. He believes that a greater commitment in the process this time can only result in a dramatic leap towards the sky as he tries to separate himself from his peers.

“I also want to go to the Shaw Classic and pull 600 kilograms (1,322.7 pounds) in it. [Hummer] Tire Deadlift, “said Novikov. “Because last year I did 549 kilograms (1,210 pounds), now I want to pull 600 kilograms to finish the topic about this deadlift. Last time, I didn’t train it at all.”

Besides extending the record marks, Novikov is unsurprisingly planning to defend his ESM and RI titles. The 2023 ESM is scheduled for Apr. 1, 2023, in Leeds, England, and the 2023 RI will likely take place in Fall 2023 at an as yet unconfirmed date. Additionally, while he is uncertain about scheduling, Novikov maintains that he will appear in a measure of Giants Live competitions, too.

Last but certainly not least, the strong will compete for another WSM title on April 18-23, 2023, in Myrtle Beach, SC. If he successfully dethrones the reigning two-time champion, Tom Stoltman, it will be Novikov’s second WSM victory in four years.

“What I’m planning now is Europe’s Strongest Man, World’s Strongest Man, and Rogue [Invitational]”said Novikov. “That’s what I want. I also don’t know the exact dates and events of Giants Live. So, if everything is OK, I will confirm myself to compete there.
