What an amazing event!
The Arnold Classic Australia was held over the weekend from the 16th - 18th of March and had more than 70,000 people in attendance at the event with people coming from all over the globe including some huge stars in the fitness industry such as Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator himself), Tony Doherty owner of Doherty’s Gyms, Bachar Houli from the Richmond Football Club, Kai Greene (American IFBB professional bodybuilder), Ivana Ivusic (3 x Olympian and IFBB Figure Pro) to name but a few.
In its class, the Arnold Sports Festival is Australia’s largest event dedicated to the fitness and bodybuilding industry in the world and included a vast array of stalls promoting health and wellbeing, as well as supplements and fitness apparel. The crew from the Arnold Sports Festival team took it even further this year and seized the opportunity to grow the Arnold Kids Zone to showcase a HUGE range of team sports activations from Futsal to Fencing and Gridiron to Gymnastics for families to engage with.
The vibe and atmosphere at the Classic was wild, there were endless things to do and see with a structured competitions schedule split between the strongman/strongwoman events, the weightlifting class and the bodybuilding showcase adding to the events.
This year’s Arnold Classic saw more world records being broken and we couldn’t go without saying congratulations to Australia's strongest man, Eddie Williams, for his performance and win in the World of Tanks PC Tank Pull where he set a new Guinness World Record!
This year we were approached by the Arnold Sports team to provide them with our custom sports and apparel, we were tasked with providing all the event staff and competitors with their custom apparel. It was a great honour which we fulfilled and delivered on with only a month to turn around more than 649 custom made shirts in varied designs with unique customisations (names on them).
The feedback we received for our product was great! The staff mentioning how much they loved the product, the fit and the comfort of our Cooltek custom made shirts. John Burgess, from the Arnold Information staff, stated that they’re the best shirts the games have had in 6 years!
