At 6‘ 6” tall and 320 lb., it’s no wonder that Evan Hansmann competes in strongman, and he told IronMind that he started training on grippers to improve his grip strength for strongman—well, he’s improved it so much that he just got certified on the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper.
Although he’s studying to be a nuclear medical technician, one wonders if there might not be a future in film or maybe professional wrestling for Evan Hansmann, shown here with the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper he officially slammed shut yesterday. IronMind® | Randall J. Strossen photo
The most recent person to certify, Hansmann knocked off the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper following a full day of heavy strongman competition (Odd Haugen’s All-American Strongman contest), treating it as a warmup of sorts for a day that would have grip strength and mas wrestling on the schedule.
Did Evan Hansmann improve his grip strength? We’d say so: Congratulations—you're on our list . . . the official Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper certification list, that is.
Special thanks to Mike Corlett for serving as the referee on Evan’s official attempt—one of many duties he dispatched with alacrity at yesterday’s Odd Haugen Strength Classic.
