National Weightlifting League was born on 2008 thanks to the sports journalist Emilio Marquiegui. He bets on it just to approach the public to this very successful sport in the US and in Europe. It consists on throwing tyres heavier and heavier, towing the trucks away or lifting safes so that we can know who is the strongest man in Spain.

It has been a few years since these competitions are been celebrating in this country, and fewer are the braves that wish to take part on it. But maybe, after seeing this illustrated report, made on Barracas (Castellón 2011) there were more people dying to try their luck.
