Arnold Amateur World Strongman Championships
The Arnold Amateur Strongman World Championships, which proved to be one of the Arnold Sports Festival's most popular events when it debuted in 2010, will once again feature more than 50 of the world’s top amateur strongman athletes from about 20 countries, including at least 20 athletes from the United States.
The third-annual Amateur World Strongman Championships will be held March 2 & 4, 2012 at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio.
All competitors earned their way into the competition through various qualifying competitions.
The 2012 Arnold USA Powerlifting Championships at the Arnold Sports Festival will grow again next year as the in popular strength competition is directed by USA Powerlifting for a fifth straight year.
USA Powerlifting, based in Columbia City, Ind., has more than 5,500 members who compete in an organization committed to drug-free competitions. The group is also the only U.S. member of the International Powerlifting Federation, the oldest and largest governing body for the sport of powerlifting. The IPF, founded in 1971, has members in more than 100 countries.
Every year, Dr Terry Todd and his staff at the Arnold Sports Festival try to find new ways to challenge the athletes they invite to what is easily the most challenging strength contest on the planet. Here at the Arnold Strongman Challenge, things arent just heavy, they are actually impossible for some of the athletes every year. Last years 240lb dumbbell press overhead saw the entire first half of the field unable to lock out even one rep. Hummer Tire Deadlift? Only 2 guys saw all 4 wheels on each side of the bar. This year looks to be about the same. The dumbbell event? Ya, they upped it to 255lbs....
