The results are in for the Arnold Strongman USA 2020.
This weekend saw the second annual Arnold Pro Strongman USA Qualifier at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California. This Strongman competition was a big one too – as it was the last event for athletes to qualify into the Arnold Strongman Classic 2020 coming up fast on March 6-7 in Columbus, Ohio.
So of course this even brought in many of the top Strongman competitors giving their best to try and not only prove their worth as the best of the best – but to earn that qualification for even bigger rewards in the near future. There were a total of five events – ultimately bringing Martin Licis, World Strongest Man 2019 winner, to the top spot with a final score of 52.
Well known superstar Strongman Brian Shaw placed second place, which means that the 4x World’s Strongest Man champion will not be able to compete at the Arnold Classic later in March.
