Chad Coy told IronMind, “Hugo Girard's contests are filled with people, excitement, and HEAVY events!,” and Karl Gillingham reinforced this: “Very heavy max yoke and wheelbarrow!,” he said. How heavy? Try 1,200 pounds.
“Thigpen has had to pull out of the show after injuring his back on the yoke [on the first day],” Coy said. “Hugo went the extra mile as a promoter and found a chiropractor to work on Josh [that] night and [the next] morning!”
Speaking of Hugo Girard, Corey St. Clair reported to IronMind, “Hugo missed emceeing on Sunday, “to go to an Inch DB Press exhibition in Quebec City, where I hear he did 20 reps.”
If that’s accurate, maybe someone should sign up Hugo Girard and Derek Poundstone to go head-to-head on this challenge.
“Hugo really has his stuff together up there. Very professional, with huge very enthusiastic crowds over three days,” Gillingham said.
