The painful game is no longer about proving strength among the gang, it’s about proving who is the toughest in the group. Looking to prove who had the strongest physique, a number of large and muscular Russian men participated in the Sarychev Power Expo.
The Sarychev Power Expo offers a platform for athletes, patriots, and the opportunity to showcase Russia’s strongest men or we may say, slappers. This is accomplished through events and competitions for power sports such as powerlifting as well as communing with patriotism through displays of national colors.
Despite being a competition for bench press world records, a strange happening occurred. The men were tortured by increasing strength of slaps, with their faces very bruised and swollen. Despite the fighting, audiences continue to flock
After hours of being knocked around, Yuriy Kuzmin from Nizhny Novgorod has finally declared the “King of the Slappers”. He took home a grand prize of 25,000 Rubles (£296.50), and took to social media to joke that taking home the trophy was “really hard-hitting”.
The cringe-worthy footage has racked up more than half a million views since surfacing online, and many have questioned what the whole point of the competition is. Others suggested the men go and have their heads examined – literally – for fears of brain damage.
