The first ever North America Deaf Strongman Games (NADS Games) is being planned for 2008 with the hope that it'll take place at one of the DeafNation expos location in 2008. This website has been around since 2006 but do check out the recently updated NADS website with more pictures, links to videos, and information for those who think they have the balls to compete in the first ever strongman (and strongwoman!) games specifically for deaf and hard of hearing athletes. Are you strong enough to flip a 300, 500 or even an 800 pound tire? How about lifting those large, round concrete balls ("Atlas stones") that can weigh anywhere from 120 to 300 pounds from the ground to a platform 4 feet high? Do you think your legs and back are strong enough to pull a large 15,000 pound truck for a distance of 75 feet for the fastest time? You want to try your hands on this new and fun competition and perhaps win cash and prizes? Check out the website for more information and who to contact. Just like the website says, "Go NADS! Only those with enough balls can compete!"
