Spenser Remick to Compete at the World’s Strongest Man Competition

Mt. Pleasant- A former Central College offensive lineman and Mt. Pleasant graduate, Spenser Remick, will be competing at the World’s Strongest Man competition in Myrtle Beach starting today.

Remick earned the invitation after winning the Open Division of the Official Strongman Games last November. This strongman accumulated two all-conference honors while playing at Central and won the Bruce Wendt Award for being the Dutch’s top offensive lineman and the Sterling Award as the top men’s strength and conditioning athlete of the year for 2008-09. Remick still holds lifting records at Central as he’s second in back squat at 740 pounds and third in bench press with 435 pounds.

The event starts today but will be televised by ESPN on a delayed basis. The competitors will be divided into five pools of six to see who qualifies over the first two days. Championship weekend will include the top two finishers in each group.
