Team Legends is made of two greats in the world of strongman, Travis Ortmayer of USA and Mark Felix of Grenada.  These greats will partner each other for the first time in the Ultimate Strongman Team World Championship in Stoke.  First, Travis Ortmayer known is known as the Texas Stoneman. Ortmayer has, unsurprisingly, a particular liking for the atlas stones.  However, Travis is no one trick pony, he started off in bodybuilding, moved on to powerlifting and finally settled as a successful international strongman.  He has competed in numerous world stage strongman events such as the Arnold Classic and placed 5th in Worlds Strongest Man on 3 occasions. In recent history Ortmayer has been plagued with injury that has severely limited his potential. Injury forced him to retire from World’s Strongest Man 2011. Despite his low-profile in 2012, Ultimate Strongman have invited Ortmayer to return to the strongman scene in style at the Team World Championship.  Travis Ortmayer’s partner is Mark Felix.  Mark Felix is getting older but is becoming even stronger with age.  Mark Felix has won the Team World Championship before and is looking to do the same with Team Legends.  Mark Felix in 2015 became the Ultimate Strongman Master World Champion.  Mark Felix will bring his tremendous back power for the deadlift in the team world championship and his grip will play a major factor too.  Felix has won numerous international grip contests, including the Rolling Thunder World Championships in 2008 & 2009, as well as the Vice Grip Viking Challenge in 2011 and 2012. Felix has also held the Rolling Thunder world record since 2008, as well as the Captains of Crush “COC” Silver Bullet world record. Due largely in part to his grip achievements, Felix is widely regarded as having the strongest grip in the world.  With experience and power, Team Legends are the team to watch out for the title.
