A gorgeous day in Des Moines, WA yesterday.

I had a total of 38 competitors participate, including 8 women.
P Diesel flew in on his own dime to help me MC the show, and it was truly an honor to have him be there with me.

Lotta action from all the Weight Classes, including the 231's which was the largest class (9)

Robbie Walden won the Log Press in the 175's.
He cleaned & pressed a 196 lbs log 6 reps in 1 minute while weighing only 164 lbs.

Kate Hanson (Oregon) won the Keg Carry for max distance.
She carried a 180 lbs keg for 320 frickin feet!

Jason Payne won the 265 lbs Men class.
He deadlifted 14 reps with 525 lbs deadlift for reps. With a "lift" and "down" signal.

No one finished the LW 694 lbs Tire Flip, until Wes Fitzgerald BEASTED it in 59.9 seconds on the 80 feet course!
Wes is a Coach at "Interurban Athletics" and I convinced him to try and compete in my contest. Never did a strongman show ever!

So many highlights, and P Diesel and I completed a radio podcast interview with "Strongman Radio" today.
Gave a 14 minute interview recapping how the event went. Will be up on Podcast by Tuesday on the NAS website.

Big thanks to J-Dawg who donated a tub of Animal Whey for the "Willie Austin Memorial Award".
This award is in honor of my late friend, Willie Austin who was a huge influence on my life and a central figure in the Seattle area for teaching Youth about Fitness and to reduce childhood obesity.
We decided collectively to give this to Kate Hanson & Diedre Miller of Oregon.

Thanks a lot to Rage Tom Fuller for sending me some Rage XL samples that I put in the competitor's goodie bags too.
I really appreciate it.

Till next year!

It was a pleasure to be able to help out with this contest. HIGA puts on one hell of a show. anyone can get an event where ppl lift sum shit and get handed a trophy. but from beginning to end Grant provided the competitiors with an experience that im sure they will want to be part of again. there is a reason this was Washington's Strongest Apple 8 and the same reson there will be a 9, 10 and 11 if he so chooses.

really did have a blast my brother. thank u for having me out, introducing me to good ppl, putting me up and feeding me to.
