RABBLE COUNTDOWN: 16th - 18th March

Arnold Amateur Strongman

Core Powerfoods Presents Arnold Amateur Strongman

They are the stuff of legend, men and women performing extraordinary feats of strength that had fans at the 2017 Arnold Sports Festival Australia cheering in shock and awe.

These modern-day Hercules lifted record-breaking weights and shifted seemingly immoveable objects over a series of gruelling events to claim the honour as the strongest.

And the 2018 Arnold Sports Festival Australia is set to have the best line-up yet of strength athletes ever assembled at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The 2017 Arnold Classic Sports Festival Strongman & Strongwoman Championships saw a revision of the weight divisions to better align the Australian competition with international events along with a step up in the weights used in previous years to further challenge the competitors and continue to grow the sport here locally in Australia’s premier strongman competition.

The event selection committee has stuck true to our goal of keeping the Arnold’s Australia as a “heavy” event that will require strength, speed, power and endurance to come out on top.
