2nd Annual Cowboy State Strongman Classic Held Saturday

It was amazing; it was exciting; it was electric at the 2nd annual Cowboy State Strongman Classic held Saturday at Purenergy Fitness on Riverside Street in Sheridan.

Twenty-one athletes were competing for the title of Strongman and Strongwoman of Wyoming. Organizer Jake Benth says it isn't just about big muscles.

This strength sport gives athletes on opportunity to work on their competitive nature.

Pavel Smelianski was there with his sixteen year-old son Anthony. Originally from Russia, they now live in Colorado and this was Anthony's first strongman competition. It would make any dad proud.

In addition to organizing the Strongman Competition, Jake was getting married that evening. Congratulations to Jake and Wren.
