Strongest Dalmatian Found

Milan Dotlic is officially the strongest Croatian from the Dalmatian region. The 25-year-old from Split took out the “Strongest Dalmatian 2012” powerlifting competition which was held yesterday in Split.

Dotlic, who was also the 2011 winner, lifted a total of 880 kilograms in three categories (bench press, squat and dead-lift) which was 80 more kilograms that last year.

Despite the mammoth effort, Dotlic was not entirely satisfied with his performance.

“Honestly, I expected more, but two weeks ago I got injured and could not achieve what I wanted. This is a sport where you always want more,” said 141kg Dotlic to Slobodna Dalmacija.

Organisers said that if the competition was an official event then Dotlic would have broken national records with his lifts.
