The 2001 Super Grip Challenge promises to squeeze the standards, since the entries include both established names and some that are poised to make their mark. This year's contest will also include women for the first time, featuring world champion armwrestler Mary McConnaughey. Organized by the steel-handed Kevin Fulton, there is a special prize for anyone who can lift the replica of the Thomas Inch dumbbell overhead with one hand, and there is a guy who is rumored to be ready to try to clean and jerk it! The 2001 Super Grip Challenge is scheduled for September 16th, in Kearney, Nebraska, and is sanctioned by the U.S. All-Round Weightlifting Association.
