The Bodybuilding.com/Los Angeles FitExpo had a PR day yesterday and the strongman contest more than did its part contributing to the excitement as Nick Best forged ahead yesterday.
Best leads the action with 37 points, followed by Terry Hollands at 32.5 points, and the competition is close for second through sixth place.

Odd Haugen told IronMind® that the strongman fans have been tremendous as the FitExpo reportedly drew its largest crowd ever yesterday. In addition to the title and prize money, the winner of this contest, the Gaspari Nutrition All-American Strongman Challenge, is guaranteed an invitation to the Arnold strongman contest, as well as one to the Mohegan Sun Grand Prix.
Haugen made special mention of Jerry Pritchett - the only amateur in the contest - as he is holding his own in a contest filled with seasoned professionals.
