In what will be loudly applauded in the US and international strongman communities, Jim Davis and his Extreme Strongman team are joining up with the city of St. Charles, Missouri to put on a 4th of July strongman contest that is going to light up the sky.
Calling the shots: Jim Davis and his Extreme Strongman team are back, so bring the whole family to St. Charles, Missouri for a very special Fourth of July celebration and a strongman contest that will remind you of what strongman is all about. IronMind® | Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. photo.
When Jim Davis took a break from strongman in 2003, it left a big hole and there was only one way to fix it: Jim Davis and Extreme Strongman had to return, and that's what they are doing. Jim said that he and Rick Fowler, who Jim said "has been with me every step of the way," have a lot of work to do between now and show time, because "everything has to be perfect," in their return to strongman productions.
This is a headliner show, with World's Strongest Man winner Svend Karlsen, Phil Pfister, Karl Gillingham and Mark Philippi set to compete - two more topflight professional strongmen will be rounding out the field, Jim Davis told IronMind®, with one invitation already extended. Davis said that the total prize money is US$22,500 in cash, and with six men competing, nobody is going home empty-handed.
St. Charles is a destination spot for the whole family and it's rooted in American history as Lewis and Clark's jumping off spot - make plans now to bring the whole family and enjoy a first rate Fourth of July celebration and a strongman contest that the US - and the sport - has needed for a long time.
Welcome back, Jim!
