i used to like the early contests better when they brought in powerlifters, wrestlers, track and field, oly weightlifters,bodybuilders, that being said the guys are much better now that they specialize in the events.

Ken was strong as hell back in the day.
These photos are of Ken back in 1977 at the WSM Show. He was one great guy to hang around.
Not the strongest at every event, but at some of them he was the best. Just thought you guys might
Like seeing some picture's that weren't scanned from someone that was there.
Enjoy

Not the smartest thing to say for sure. But
He is right. We all know that steroids are still being used today all over the world by some Bodybuilders, Lifters, and Strongmen even in this day and age. Back in the 60s and 70s they didn't know any better. But you do know now don't you?  I'm against all usage and would like to think no one uses anymore but we all know that will never happen. There's a way around everything sad to say. I would like to say to all of you out there that don't use, Don't Start And Good For You. And to though's of you who do, STOP!!!  You can be great without.
Try Blood, Sweat, and Iron.

Sorry guy.
Bruce was stronger than Ken in though's days. Ken had his good events as shown in the photo of them bending the steel bars. But Bruce just beat him out in the end. And Bruce did WIN two years in a row. I was there to see it all. I thought Ken was a great competitor. I take nothing away from him. I think Bruce was just in a little better shape.
