Here we, are… about 7 weeks out from the competition. We’re over 1/3 full of competitors, with many promises of entries on there way. Just to be clear on a few topics now:
- I will not accept late entries. I never have and I cant start now. So many things go on behind the scenes to make sure each competitor enjoys the competition and I cant be guessing how many will show up last minute.
- If the Masters HWY and LWY do not each get 4 competitors by Oct 1, I will combine them and use the LWY weights for the show. As of today, there is one in each class. I offer these classes as a courtesy to the lighter guys that want compete against other light guys, but if minimal people show interest, I have to do whats best for the show.
- Team slots are available. This does NOT mean you compete in differently, it just means you get judged for personal points AND team points if you are a qualifying member of the team.
Keep the entries coming and continue train smart and hard.
With the 2nd annual Roman & Roman Tampa Bay Strongman Classic approaching fast, the ranks are filling up just as fast. Check out the Competitors page to see who has already entered and who is still just “talking about it.”
Since I’ve been involved in strength athletics, I’ve seen so many people talk about how much they can lift of how they’d love to compete, but very few actually have the testicular fortitude to throw their hat into the ring and compete for glory. The sport of strongman has very few rewards, besides personal gratification and bragging rights, so its not for the weak of mind or body.
Think you have what it takes? Fill out your entry form, located HERE, and prove it.
Oh by the way, if you succeed in placing first in your class, your physical reward will be this..
The gladiators used to wear intimidating helmets like this, to strike fear into their opponents. What better way to show you mean business, than donning a gladiator helmet, won in the fiercest of battles!
