Cornwall Ontario – Faster, Higher, Stronger.

With the Olympics currently underway in Rio, the attention of Canadians has been focused on sports and athletics this summer, with many asking the questions: How fast? How high? How strong?

Cornwall’s Tom Irvine is offering the answer to the last question this Saturday as he hosts a Strongman/Strongwoman competition at Quest Gym on Montreal Road.

Over 40 competitors are expected to take part in the event which features 5 actvities:

  • Atlas Stone Over Bar
  • Viking Press
  • Yoke Walk and Farmer’s Walk Medley
  • Tire Flip
  • Surprise Event

“We’ve had a very good response to the event, and had to close registrations early as we reached the maximum number of athletes,” says Mr. Irvine. “These are popular events as they challenge both mentally and physically, but are also fun events to participate in.”

The event will be held outside in front of the Quest Gym on Montreal Road from 10am to 5pm. The event is open and free to the public.

“In addition to local athletes we have a lot of people coming from out of town, including from Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal,” says Mr. Irvine. “Out of town athletes will be taking advantage of our great hotels and restaurants – not to mention Foodfest and Musicfest.”

The amateur event does offer the following prizes:

  • $500 – Men Heavyweight
  • $500 – Women Open Class
  • $350 – Men Middleweight
  • $350 – Men Lightweight
