ALKI BEACH CLASSIC - FEATS OF STRENGTH
AAU Feats of Strength
22nd Annual Alki Beach Classic
Once again Bull Stewart and his crew put on a fantastic meet which included: Powerlifting - Bench Press + Deadlift and the AAU sanctioned Feats of Strength - Stone Throw.
It was great to get together and throw/lift with old friends I haven't seen in a while and new friends I look forward to meeting again soon. The contest was held on a gorgeous saturday afternoon august 18th at Alki Beach in Seattle. For an event like the Stone Throw it doesn't get any better then this! Beautiful and sunny with a steady crowd of 200 to 300 people walking/stopping by all afternoon to watch the athletes perform. That is well into the thousands of viewers by the end of the day.
My throws were:
72lbs Stone 11.75 feet
56lbs Stone 12.50 feet
There is nothing like throwing/lifting/competing outdoors. Bull is a great person and his AAU sanctioned meets are the best. Can't wait for the next one - lift heavy and throw far!
