I know crossfitters who can deadlift 120KG without the bar bending, this makes the lift harder. Lifting 120kg without the bar bending is way harder than deadlifting 360kg. They can also run 10km, and a bet this guy can't.
BendtheBar: Just realized that you bend the bar in order to make your 700 lb deadlifts easier. Dont bend it and you will struggle with 300 lbs

Yeah, Savickas probably can't run a HALF marathon in as good of a time as them, but I'd say the majority of competitors are also no where near strict pressing a 400 lb log over their heads or able to do the stones as fast as he or Shaw...I could go on, but I won't.
Neither logs, nor stones bend. So crossfitters should have a field day in strongman contests, amirite
