The Amateur Strongman World Championships at the 2010 Arnold kicking things off in a big way and Dione Wessels told IronMind®, “Our goal is that this will be the first year of many years, for the Amateur World Championships at the Arnold Sports Festival.”
“None of this would be possible,” said Wessels, “without the support of many athletes, promoters, state chairs, and event organizers all over the world that believe in the NAS/ASC system. When looking at the top five to ten athletes in the world, ASC athletes fill half of the list, which proves that the system works.”
