“The day went well,” ASC’s Dione Wessels said, “and no injuries other than a couple of sprain ankles. The athletes’ points will be decreased by 10% to make the points more level and even for Sunday.”
Over in the professional strongman contest, NAS/ASC alumni have also been flexing their muscles and currently stand in the top three positions: Mike Jenkins (17 points), Michael Burke (15.5 points) and Derek Poundstone (15 points).
