    I take it we are picking them up at their youth-peak?

    I'd like to say Platz, I think his attitude and technical approach might take him furthest in a strength sport.

    but freak genetics can't be underestimated...

    Sergio was an olympic weightlifter before he came to bodybuilding, so there's that. He'd win any standing overhead.
    Yates and Ruhl are the biggest guys and were definitely strong at all the bodybuilding stuff, hard to tell how they'd do at strongman stuff.
    It's a toss-up between those three.

    I'd rank them:

    Markus Rühl.
    dorian yates
    sergio olivia
    tom platz.
    arnold
    kai greene
    dexter jackson
    phil heath

    Add Ronnie Coleman to that list and he would be at the top.
