PHOTOS: Kelowna’s Strongest show their muscles at City Park

The third annual Kelowna’s Strongest competition took place on Saturday, May 18

A bit of morning rain didn’t stop the strongest men and women in town from competing at the third annual Kelowna’s Strongest weightlifting competition on Saturday, May 18.

Held at City Park, 77 athletes went through five events as they competed to win a cash prize.

The five events were: car deadlift, bag toss, log ladder, timber frame, and sandbag load.

During the car deadlift, athletes attempted to lift either a Toyota Corolla and a Toyota Tacoma.

While it is a competition, all the athletes cheer on each other throughout the day as some athletes try to accomplish personal bests as well.
