HARRISBURG -- Mike Jenkins, one of the strongest men in the world, has died.

He was 31.

Jenkins, a resident of Dauphin County, died suddenly this morning. CrossFit Gamma, the gym in which Jenkins co-owned in Hershey, announced his death on its Facebook page but offered no other details.

Jenkins finished fourth at this year's World's Strongest Man competition in China.

His biggest win came at the 2012 Arnold Strongman Classic, in which he beat the biggest names in the sport, including Zydrunas Savickas, Derek Poundstone, and Brian Shaw.

Jenkins, who was 6'6" and around 400 lbs., also won the 2012 Giants Live in Australia and the 2010 Arnold Strongman amateur event.

A native of Westminster, Md., Jenkins also played college football at James Madison. He is survived by his wife, Keri.
