My Arnold Sports Festival experience

Published:

 

I spoke on social media the other week about how people can assume you are lucky and opportunities are given to you. Partly because of the way we live, we are unaware of the exact nature of a persons day and what it entails, and partly because we covet the lives we see and the way our idols seem to breeze from one success to another.

I can guarantee that in general there will be more to it than you realise. Well at least this is the case for me. I can easily work 7 days a week and because I love what I do, I can forget to book time for myself. This year I have been making a concerted effort to take some days for me, especially when I have such a hectic a varied schedule.

I work hard and I will continue to do so. I recently went to the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus Ohio as part of the International press team. I loved every minute of the experience and it is something I will never forget. I had to fill out an extensive application and provide evidence and references and between you and me I was elated when my credentials were approved.

My main objective was to provide coverage and report on the Worlds Strongest woman competition for Genetic Supplements (one of their athletes was competing) and for British Strength Magazine. I was also able to cover the Disabled Strongman competition and in fairness I didn’t see an awful lot else.

The Event had a record 77 different sports being showcased with 15000 athletes and 80 different countries represented. This is before you even consider all of the stalls and visitors. The event included the IFBB pro show and Worlds Strongest man with household names such as Thor (The Mountain from Game of Thrones) and Brian Shaw.

I flew out on the Thursday and the Worlds Strongest Woman competition was scheduled for the Friday and Saturday with Genetic Supplements sponsored athlete Donna Moore having been invited to attempt a World Record on the Sunday. My full report can be read in the British Strength Magazine available on 1st April 2018 and to subscribe just visit their website www.britishstrengthmagazine.com

The outstanding result of the weekend was that Donna not only took the title of Worlds Strongest Woman and World record holder. Also bringing the trophy back to England was Mark Smith who took the title of Worlds Strongest seated disabled man. All in all a successful trip for us Brits. I flew home on the Monday so I can literally not tell you anything about Columbus itself other than it was cols and seemed very flat. LOL I cannot wait to go back next year if I can and if you love BodyPower expo this is so many levels higher than that.

If you would like to know more about the supplements that fuelled Donna to her title visit www.geneticsupplements.co.uk and sign up for the newsletter for FREE weekly training and nutrition tips from experts and discounts, offers and competitions straight to your inbox.

I always love to hear from you so please feel free to message us on any of the socials and email with any questions.
