Aurora, IL, June 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The True Strength of numerous Midwestern strongmen will be tested on June 12th at Kansas City’s Belton Hanger. That’s where the 7th annual Gus Lohman Memorial Missouri’s Strongest Man competition will be hosted by Eric Todd, state North American Strongman (NAS) chairman. Todd is a grandson of the late Gus Lohman, whose memory is being honored for the seventh consecutive year at this event, which serves as the official state strongman championship for Missouri.
“Wrestlers, weight lifters and old time strongmen from the Kansas City area still talk about Gus Lohman,” said Todd. “He would lift objects that no one else could lift and was never beaten at wrestling. I’m proud to carry on the legacy as his grandson.” Sponsored by Optimum Nutrition, the Gus Lohman Memorial Missouri’s Strongest Man competition raises thousands of dollars every year for Camp Quality USA, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide community-based camping programs and ongoing support for children with cancer. “As someone who has volunteered as a companion for a Camp Quality camper, I can say that what they do for these kids is remarkable,” said Todd.
Events at Missouri’s Strongest Man competition will include a head-to-head bus pull with 3 school buses, and also a head-to-head farmer’s/sled drag medley along with circus dumbbell clean and press, monster keg load and Conan’s wheel. The Top 3 contestants in each weight class will qualify to participate at the NAS Nationals November 12th and 13th in Reno, Nevada.
