Arnold’s Strongest Man – Iron Game History – July, 2003

In much the same way as the event played out last year, the 2003 edition of the Arnold’s Strongest Man contest provided displays of pageantry, superhuman strength, and high drama as eight outstanding athletes battled each other in Columbus, Ohio, to determine who had the most valid claim to be called the Strongest Man in the World. Readers of Iron Game History will recall that last year was the first time this contest was held, and that Mark Henry, the 400-pound professional wrestler, powerlifter, and weightlifter dominated the event. But this year the WWE needed big Mark for a tour of South Africa, and so the 2003 show was anyone’s to win.
