World's Strongest Man Competition


This is Phil Pfister competing in the World's Strongest Man Competition here in Charleston, WV this week. I took some pictures today. I don't have time to post a lot of shots, but here's one of Phil throwing a keg over a very high bar. I'll put some more up tomorrow. It's pretty astonishing what these guys are able to do.

Excellent capture Rick. Phil would be proud. I look forward to seeing some more pics later on when you get a chance to post them.

Have you posted any yet Jason?

Rick Lee said...

Oops... just looked on your Flickr stream and I see that you have posted some good shots.

Thanks, Rick! I got several strong shots (not pun intended) this afternoon that I'm really happy with.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss the Fingal Fingers tomorrow morning, but should be able to squeeze in the Truck Pull tommorrow evening.

Hey! I was there! Those guys are HUGE! I read in the paper about their nutritional intake and let me tell you, I couldn't afford to feed one of them!

Nice pic Rick. You captured the strength of these guys perfectly.
