STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – The Iron Fit Crew in Struthers hosted Ohio’s strongest man and woman teen competition on Saturday.

Every year, the competition tries to make it a benefit for someone battling a medical condition. This year, proceeds go to a childhood friend battling cancer.

“A couple years ago, my grandma passed away from cancer, and ever since then, I just try to find somebody that we can help benefit each year, with a benefit like this, anyway we can,” said Dylan Schmidt, part of the Iron Fit Crew.

The competition started at 10 a.m.

A portion of Spring Street was closed off for the truck pull events.

The entire event was held outside and followed COVID-19 guidelines set by the state. Spectators and competitors had to wear masks at all times.

Events highlighted include circus dumbbell, dead lift, truck pull and keg.

There was also a food truck at the event.
