The HIGA MONSTER is proud to present the "5th Washington's Strongest Apple"contest.
We will again be part of the opening day of the Marina Farmer's Market and the new location of the north entrance of the marina. There will be an unobstructed view of the beautiful Puget Sound and the Marina Farmers Market will be right next to our contest location.
The top 3 competitors in each weight class will qualify for the "Amateur National Championships" to be held this November in Tunica, MS.
So far, I have 26 competitors which include 3 from Australia! Its truly an honor to have some international competitors fly all the way to Seattle to participate in my contest.
Guest judges include ASC Lightweight pro strongman, Zack McCarley and ASC Heavyweight pro strongman, Andrew Palmer.
Bring your family and friends! Admission is FREE. If you have never been to a live Strongman contest, now is your chance to see it locally here in the Seattle area.

Thank you to all my sponsors, especially to Bulky Boy Clothing for designing these awesome "Red Apple" shirts for all of my competitors.
Pro strongman Kevin Nee stopped by for a workout at "Imperial CrossFit" last night.
An honor to have Kevin stop by the gym last night. He did some Axle clean & presses and I jumped in and did some Front Squats with him too. A few of the members took pictures with him too and was happy to meet him.
