HIGA's first day in Toronto, Canada.

When I checked into my hotel, the Seattle Sounders coaching staff was in the lobby!
They play Toronto tonight thats why, and head coach Sigi Schmid was way cool to let me snap a pic!

Stopped by the Animal Pak booth at the "Toronto Supershow" to say "hi" to the Canadian distributors.

Our hotel is right off of this street.  Alot of baseball history there in that sign.

Theresa, Corey St Clair & Karl Gillingham in front of our hotel.
The CN Tower is in the background and dat buggah is HUGE!

Just woke up.  We have a strongman rules meeting downstairs at 8am.  Then we compete at 1:30pm EST.

" Fitness Expo" is this Saturday!

HIGA MONSTER will be in Boise this weekend for the BFE.

Flying out to Boise, Idaho tomorrow afternoon.  As soon as I get off the plane, I'm headed to the "Boise Animal Barbell Club" that Animal Pak is hosting at Gold's Gym from 6pm-8pm.  Fellow pro strongmen Corey St Clair and Brian Shaw will be there too for the workout.  Eating champion "Furious Pete" is also supposed to stop by the ABC.
After the ABC, we are going to take our massive appetites to "Ono Hawaiian Cafe" for some post-workout grindz.  Braddah Mike Mohica (da owner) cooks some killah food and I can't wait to chow down with the boys! 

Saturday will be the BFE from 10am-5pm MST.  This event is so huge and admission to the BFE is free!  Here is a link with more info:

1pm will be the start of the "Amateur Strongman Exhibition" that Animal Pak is sponsoring.  HIGA is looking forward to throwing some heavy weight around for the crowd with Corey St Clair and Brian Shaw!

"Washington's Strongest Apple 4" pictures (Des Moines, WA)

Cyal Christmas (Aberdeen, WA) won the Superheavyweight class.

Kristyn Whisman (Stanwood, WA) won the Lightweight Women division.

My cousin Dain Agbayani was out there helping me load/unload equipment.  He was wearing the flat lid Bulky Boy hat and tube socks at the contest.  Mahalos cuz!

It was a sunny day on the marina at Des Moines, WA.  I had a total of 36 competitors, including 4 women.  They all put their hearts on the line and brought intensity to each of the 5 events.

Local photographer Jim Wallingford (Bellevue, WA) has uploaded 2,243 photos onto his website.  He took some UNREAL shots of all the competitors and my staff/loaders/helpers.  You need to check them out!

The top 3 lifters in each weight class qualify for the Amateur National Strongman Championship in November 4-5th at Harrah's Casino (Tunica, MS).

A big "mahalo" to all of the competitors who came from Washington and Oregon and participated in my show.  Also to my family and friends who helped me set-up and breakdown for the contest.  Without them, I wouldn't be able to this efficiently every year.

Mahalo to all of my sponsors:
  • Bulky Boy
  • Animal Pak
  • Trapper's Sushi (Covington, WA)
  • Imperial Fitness
  • Imperial CrossFit
  • North American Strongman, Inc
  • Joe Jewell (Service Manager of the city of Des Moines Marina).
  • The city of Des Moines, Washington.
  • Marv Michaud at Chipman United.
  • "SARGE" John Allen for hauling some of the equipment from Sequim, WA.
  • Jim Wallingford Photography
  • Ron Trunick
  • Caleb Ralston of who filmed alot of coverage at the contest.
Another successful strongman contest is in the books!  I hope to see you all next year for number 5 baby!
