The heat lately has been almost unbearable, and on the morning of this strong man show it was almost enough to ensure that I just stayed home. Truth is, being at home would have been no cooler and at least at the event I could drink cider and sit in the shade… Except that there was almost zero shade, as the Rugby Club is pretty damn open.
I really didn’t envy these guys at all, competing and lifting these weights can only have felt hellish. Still, they did what they did and it was pretty fun to watch. It’s real satisfying to witness such genuine supporting environments.
I roamed about with my camera for a few hours so feel free to scroll through the gallery below and I hope you dig the shots.
