KOTA KINABALU: Being the lightest of them all did not stop strongwoman Joyce Heng Shu Xia winning the Women’s Open title in the Static Monsters World Championships 2019. I did not expect to win first place since it was only my first entry into the Static Monsters finals and my opponents were all bigger than me,” Heng said in a text reply. Started in 2015, the Static Monsters is now the biggest strongman event of its kind in the world. Strongmen and strongwomen who made it to the qualifiers participated in various feats including deadlifts and log presses during the two-day event. “We will reimburse her full cost of travel,” he said when asked if the ministry would provide any token or recognition for her achievement.
