A colorful recap of the Power Struggle and Feats of Strength comps in CT and NY in February of 2011.
In the past two out of three weekends I have attended two storied comps in southern New England, the first being the Power Struggle and the second being the Feats of Strength.
The Power Struggle, held the same weekend as ABS Nationals, was put on by the Prime Climb gym in suburban Wallingford CT. Prime Climb opened in 1993 and is one of the oldest gyms in the nation still standing. Originally a hub for trad climbers, PC has since produced world class strongmen such as 2001 ABS Champion Tommy Durant, prolific developer Dan "Berg" Yagmin, Bradley super-local Dan Bates, and 2010 break-out star and Five Ten athlete Phil Schaal. The comp was organized and set by none other than Tommy D himself, who still finds time to help out at PC despite being a full time med student.
