Amid fierce competition, one muscle-bound Colombian stood above the rest at the 2013 “Titan’s Challenge” to be anointed, “the strongest man in Colombia.”
At a hulking 6’4″, 295 lbs, Over Campo Nieto flipped tractor tires, towed trucks, and tantalized screaming teens as he tore through the competition to win the Titan’s Challenge, which was held in Medellin’s South Terminal Mall.
His crowning achievement came during the final moments of the contest when he dragged two trucks, each weighing about eight tons, for 43.7 yards in 41 seconds. Sweat poured off the competitor like condensation off an ice cold bottle of Aguila beer, the preferred beverage of the Antioquian spectator.
The bodybuilding instructor, now known as the strongest man in Colombia, is a bachelor and is not just known for his feats of strength, but also for the strength of his character. Among friends, he is what you might call, a gentle giant — sweet as a pastry filled with arequipe, the carmel-like filling so popular here in Medellin.
