Cruelty Free Expo 2005
The MVS training crew had a vegan strength stall at the 2005 Cruelty Free Expo. the day went great with thousands of people streaming through and taking heaps of the vegan strength leaflets. There was a lot of interest from people coming up and asking all sorts of questions and lots of interest also in the tub of redbak SPI we had out on the table. And the captains of crush grippers were popular as usual.
Achilles, the Australian national powerlifting champion (2002), was on hand to answer questions from the public about powerlifting and veganism. He has competed in world powerlifting championships (IPF) and also holds the Australian record for the squat in the 82.5kg category. His max lifts are: deadlift 257kg, bench 152kg and squat 280kg.
We also had a grip strength competition which was insanely popular. To loud cries of ‘rigged’ Hannibal took hom the strongest male grip prize with 72.5kg (Adam from MVS came in close second with 68.5kg) and Elsa took home strongest female (45kg).
