Last year’s competition saw more than 40 athletes, with an overwhelming atmosphere of sportsmanship and support for all lifters.

Madison Stewart, a previous competitor said, “I loved how encouraging everyone was. Even though it was a competition people were constantly saying ‘you can do it’ or ‘great job’. High fives were everywhere and it was awesome!”
