Willie Wessels Wins the 105s

In a blistering performance, NAS president Willie Wessels won the 105-kg US National Strongman Championships this weekend and thereby is invited to compete in the inaugural 105-kg Strongman World Championships to be held later this year in Finland. Wessels, who comes from a formidable powerlifting background, said that he's glad it's over, but that the contest went extremely well, and he had nothing but the finest things to say about runner up Kirk Nowak, calling him "a fabulous athlete." Asked what he thinks about having a 105-kg category in strongman, Wessels said, "It's been a long time coming. Pound for pound, the 105-kg competitors are the strongest men on the planet."
