Coy competes in national event

LAS VEGAS— Howard County native Chad Coy took 12th place in the America’s Strongest Man competition held Friday and Saturday.

The 44-year-old competes in masters contests for 40-and-older athletes, but returned to open competition this season for his 10th appearance in the America’s Strongest Man event after taking second in the Masters’ Worlds recently. He first started competing in the open event in 1998.

In the eight events, Coy scored highest in the 750-pound dead lift reps (taking eighth place), and the suicide medley of carrying three objects 75 feet each and then dragging a sled loaded with all three (taking ninth place).

Colorado’s Brian Shaw was the 2013 champ.

“This was my final open show,” Coy said. “I will stick with the Masters’ from here on out. I give all the credit to God for making me this way and blessing me with the strength and longevity in this sport.”

It was the third hole in one of Julie’s career, all of which have come in the last 10 years. She is the head women’s golf coach at Indiana Wesleyan University.
