16 posts in this topic

In 2016 I had the opportunity to put on a unique grip contest Living Legends. To hear all about it check out Motivation and Muscles podcast with Andrew Durniat.

 http://motivationandmuscle.com/podcast/andrew-durniat-living-legends-grip-contest-532/

 

Before I get to the big announcement I need to thank everyone who supported the 2016 event.

 ·       Our Sponsors; without whose financial support the event would not have been possible.         

o   Durniat Strength

o   Sahlaney Iron

o   Leader Sports

o   Yahalla

o   Diesel Crew

o   Chris Rice

 

·       Andrew Durniat, Adam Glass, Kody Burns, and Jedd Johnson for being the headliner contestants and provided a mountain of input for the event.

·       Juha Harju and Arto Joronen for traveling over to the USA from Finland to make the event all the more special.

·       Aaron Concorran also known as the mystery athlete ?????????. That was just a ton of fun leading into the event.

·       Maria Bascetta, Brent Barbe, and Darrin Shallman for volunteering to judge the events on the long day.

·       Jedd Johnson for helping promoting the contest.

·       Rich Cottrell for hiring the video crew and producing the DVD of the event.

·       The “old man” who puts up with me week after week to make the equipment for FBBC.

·       All the athletes who came in to make this a unique event.

·       My wife and family without your support this would not have happened.

  

Now to discuss how we are going to make the next one even bigger.
