The Indy Pipers started off Opening Ceremonies and were followed by the athletes. Then the national anthem was performed by local Indy Opera Singer, Megan Swazuk. All events started at 9:30AM and ended by 1:30PM, all without injury. Our first event for Indiana Muscle was in 2018, and we had 20 athletes and in 2019 we had 61. Half were first-time competitors, 30 athletes this year. Looks like there were several Bid qualifications based on the numbers as well. All in, a great time growing the sport of Strongman in Indiana.
