Arnold Pro Strongwoman 2022

A complete breakdown of the Arnold Pro Strongwoman 2022 results

In what was an exciting two-day event, the Arnold Pro Strongwoman 2022 has wrapped with Victoria Long winning the entire event. Taking place at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, ten strongwomen converged on the arena in hopes of being crowned the ultimate champion. With grueling events, plenty of drama, and a fantastic showing by all the athletes, we now have a winner and are already looking ahead to next year.

Looking back to our love of Strongman, and now with Strongwomen events as well, what we find so fascinating is the ability the human body has to lift almost immovable objects. A test of the body and mind, these competitors are keen on proving just how good they are by lifting massive amounts of weight.

The Arnold Pro Strongwoman 2022 was just another event highlighting why the sport is so fun and entertaining to watch and to the credit of all these competitors, they put on quite a show for fans far and wide. The event sponsors of Strongman Corporation and Rogue worked hard to give this event the attention it deserved and continue to promote this wonderful sport.
