HIGA & the Seattle Animals are ready for tomorrow! (Lacey, WA)

Mahalo to Dr Steven Ryan of "Fairwood Chiropractic"!

After digging his bony elbow into my back & stripping away any adhesions, my chiropractor Dr Steven Ryan donated a box full of canned goods for the Thurston County Food Bank fundraiser that I'm helping out with tomorrow down in Lacey, WA.  Mahalo for keeping my body healthy & for helping us out with this good cause Dr Ryan!

HIGA pulling a Ford Fiesta, with the Bulky Boy socks giving me some power!

Trying to finish flipping a 955 lb tire.

My daughter Kaiea took all of those awesome videos of me.  Mahalo baby!

I finished 8th place overall, out of 12 competitors.

Every Labor Day, I look forward to competing in this show.  The fans of Quebec are second to none and they love their strongman contests!

"Merci" to contest promoter Hugo Girard.  He and his staff always put on a phenomenal show and I'm honored to be a part of it.
