Hugo Girard: World Record in Farmer's Walk

Hugo Girard (Canada) wasted no time establishing himself in yesterday's IFSA Hawaiian Grand Prix, establishing a world record in the first event.

This was the final contest in the 2002 IFSA Super Series and the events were very heavy.  Things kicked off with a Farmer's Walk using 385-pound cylinders in each hand.  Girard smoked the 25-meter course in 21.39 seconds, which IFSA head Douglas Edmunds, Ph.D. subsequently declared, "an inaugural IFSA world record," for this weight, over this distance, and with no drops. 

Just how fast was Hugo? Second place in the event went to Jaroslav Dymek (Poland), who covered the course in 50.57 seconds.
