The 2017 Arnold Sports Festival, which takes place annually in Columbus, Ohio, will feature a Dinnie Stone “lift and hold” competition when it is held from March 2 to 5.

I'm really looking forward to the PL at the Arnold this year - as I understand it the IPF might be taking away it's designation as an "International Meet", so this could be the last year World Records can be set here.

So it isn't part of the main strongman events it is just a circus show side piece?

Needed to subscribe so couldn't read all of the article.

The Arnold seems to like doing extra individual events, especially involving Grip.

It hasn't been announced yet.

We will see whether it will be a part of official strongman contest or part of "record breakers", as it was called last year:

It will be part of the record breakers side show. They won't target grip in the main contest. Wish they would.

I think Mike Burke had the best attempt, but no I don't think so.

Mike Burke attempted it..Was on YouTube ..He did fail, but it was a good effort. Not really a grip or a strength issue... Probably more coordination.

Well he attempted to clean them and failed...Press shouldn't be a problem for him at the time.

What is an "Inch" dumbell in real terms. im assuming the grip isnt literally an inch as isnt 25mm an average bar?

The handle is 2.38" in diameter - I believe it could actually be 2.375".

"Inch" is Thomas Inch, the great British Strongman.
