Ghanaian Belgium-based powerlifter and strongman Evans Nana Ekow Aryee has been selected to participate in this year’s Imatra Strongman competition that is held annually in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.

The date slated for this year's competition is from August 26 to August 27, 2022. This year’s competition is expected to host over 30 strongmen drawn from various parts of Europe to battle it out in the two-day event.

The 24-year-old Evans’s invitation to the Imatra Strongman competition marks the first time a Ghanaian has had the opportunity to participate in such an international powerlifting and strongman competition.

In conveying his feelings towards his invitation to this year’s competition, Evans expressed high hopes and alluded to the fact that his invitation to the competition is a sign that his hardwork is being recognized.

"The Imatra Strongman competition is one of the biggest powerlifting and strongman competitions in Europe. It is obvious that it is every strongman’s dream to get the chance to participate in such a credible and prestigious competition.

"This only sends one message loud and clear to me, that my hard work is being recognized and that this is a good opportunity to show the world what I am made of," he stated.

Evans also asked for the support of Ghanaians both at home and in the diaspora to make it a point to come and support their own as he intends to make his mother country proud at the end of the competition.

" I expect that all Ghanaians, both at home and in the diaspora, especially those in Finland, should come out and support their own. The goal is to put Ghana on the map and represent it gracefully at various international competitions," he said.

The two-day competition set to take place in Finland will include the following activities on the first day: deadlift trap bar 335/375kg, long press 140kg reps, and front hold 30kg.

While the activities of the second day of the championship will comprise Conan’s wheel, keg toss 4,2m, loading, framers walk and Press Medley.
