Wal-Mart Sports Experience Family Festival 2008: The MET-Rx Crucifix and Wrist Roller Challenge by Francis Brebner
The MET-Rx booth at this year's Wal-Mart Sports Experience Family Festival was once again inundated with entrants for the Crucifix and Wrist Roller Challenge.
Colin Forbes recorded the fastest time for the Wrist Roller Challenge, reeling in the weighted 22-lb. MET-Rx bucket in a record time of 11.98 seconds.

The Crucifix Challenge consisted of two buckets each filled with 22 lb. of MET-Rx protein held at arms' length and at shoulder height for the longest time possible.
Before the doors even opened to the public, the local policemen on duty could not resist the challenge, and officer Tim Sheppard recorded a notable time of 55 seconds in the Crucifix Challenge.
The overall winner at the end of the day was a father of four, Kevin Ziggler, who blew all the young beefcakes away with an outstanding time of 1 minute 44 seconds, which was done under the strictest judging conditions.
Kevin was happy to have won the MET-Rx Strength Challenge and a six months' supply of free MET-Rx products. Kevin said, "I look forward to coming back next year and hopefully winning the Challenge again and another six months' supply of MET-Rx."
