Photos: Arnold Classic 2018
The yearly gathering of mega-humans and amateur sportsters took place over the weekend as the Convention Center and surrounding venues welcomed what felt like a billion people for The Arnold Sports and Fitness Expo 2018.
Over 1,000 vendors crammed into the sensory overload expo hall to showcase the latest in sports equipment, apparel and funky looking sugar-buzz work out drinks, while more than 20,000 athletes of all sizes, strengths and tan-level competed all across the city in 75+ sports ranging from the brain-muscle workout of Chess, to the weekend’s highlight competition, the Strongman Classic, this year won by powerhouse, Hafthor Bjornsson, known to many as The Mountain from HBO’s Game of Thrones.
