In 2015, a strongman/woman contest was born unlike any other on Earth. This contest lured the strongest, most rugged, and most determined champions in the region to the hills of WV to battle for the right to call themselves the best. What was different about this contest? Why did only the most hardy warriors step up to the challenge? The answer is the same reason that will draw great champions again this year; in fact there are 3 answers:
1) This contest will be contested out doors in the middle of the Appalachian cold season. In 2015, early morning temps were in the single digits, 6in of snow fell by 11am, and the afternoon was drenched with freezing rain.
2) No one will know the events prior to the contest. There is no “event practice” for this contest, you must simply be the strongest to win.
3) This is the WV State Championships, and that means it will be a Level II contest, and thus it will be brutal and heavy.
