Arnold Expo: Lots of Strength on Display

COLUMBUS, Ohio—Kicking things off with some top arm wrestling, the Arnold Expo had plenty going on today for just about everyone interested in strength.

The Columbus Weightlifting Club is doing a tremendous job showcasing Olympic lifting, and tomorrow Shane Hamman and Cheryl Haworth will hoist some heavy weights.  In the strongman contest, Zydrunas Savickas won the Apollon Wheels today and Mark Philippi won the Hummer deadlift.  Wade Gillingham has had hundreds of people try to match him at the GNC Pro Performance Grip Gauntlet, but so far nobody has been able to, although a professional football player who said he'd never seen any of these things before, lifted the Rolling Thunder and the Blob, but couldn't quite put away the No. 3 Captains of Crush gripper.
