Strongman competition not just for the men

Clearwater, Florida - The competitors are known for flipping tires and carrying kegs full of sand or water. During some contests, the participants pull cars or lift large stones.

Spectators are used to seeing men perform these challenges in Strongman competitions but, in recent years, women have been flocking to the sport too.

"Some of the women are more impressive than a lot of the guys," professional Strongman competitor Scott Weech of Lakeland recently told 10 News.

"Some of the stuff they do is just insane," Weech added.

On weekends, Weech, along with a handful of other men, train in the Clearwater parking lot of the law firm Roman and Roman. They're usually joined by a couple of women.
