Skosyrskii successfully defended his title in the Russian competition.
Dmitri Skosyrskii is the winner of Siberian Power Show 2023 (PLC). At the Russian Strongman competition, which showcases some of the best in the sport in the Eastern Hemisphere, Skosyrskii successfully repeated himself as champion. He is now a dominant three-time winner of the competition (2019, 2022-2023), which has only been held since 2019. The only other winner in SPS history in 2021 is Georgian Konstantine Janashia. The competition, which also held separate bodybuilding and powerlifting competitors, was held in Krasnoyarsk, Russia on April 2, 2023 and featured 11 competitors.
The SPS 2023 runner-up was David Shamey. According to Strongman Archives, the athlete improved on two previous fifth-place finishes in the 2021 and 2022 iterations of the SPS. Rounding out the podium was Peiman Maheripourehir. The strongman doesn’t often compete in full competitions and usually focuses on his deadlift skills and the annual World Deadlift Championships (WDC). Nonetheless, a podium result is undoubtedly a quality finish for the experienced competitor.

He only failed to qualify for the podium once, with a fourth place finish at Forca Bruta 2022.

In the context of the broader strongman sphere, the SPS may not have the same status as other international competitions that feature some of the world’s strongest athletes. However, Skosyrskii can, and likely will, bask before moving on to his next competitive attempt to officially mark a contest’s winning streak.
