I did what I came to do, I would have been happy with any of the four spots to worlds in China, but 2nd by .5 points makes me a very happy camper. I’ll have more when I return home, here is a quick review from americanstrongman.org
COLUMBIA, SC - Wilmington, Delaware’s Kevin Nowack held off New England’s Brad Cardoza to win the IFSA-USA 105K Pro National Championship held at the Verizon Wireless South Carolina Strongman Championships at Total Gym, Columbia, SC on Saturday, August 13, 2005.
The 210-pounder, who trains in nearby Delaware County, PA with his brother Kirk, last year’s runner-up, did not win a single event. “His consistancy won him the title,” IFSA-USA president Dione Wessels said after the competition. It is the same formula used by Willie Wessels when he won the first-ever title last year in Ft. Worth, Texas. Wessels did not compete this year.
Nowack, who scored 47.0 points to Cardoza’s 46.5, now moves on to the IFSA World 105K Championships to be held in China later this year in a location and date to be announced. The top four finishers from Saturday’s competition advanced to the Worlds.
In addition to Kevin Nowack and Cardoza, Ryan Meyers (3rd place, 42.5 points) and Mike Johnston (4th place 40.5) also advanced.
