Is Larry Wheels Big Enough to be Successful in Strongman?

The thought of a 6’1 260 plus pound man being too small is weird in itself. But this is the reality for record breaking powerlifter Larry Wheels. Switching from powerlifting to strongman may be more difficult than this young man thought. Obviously strength isn’t the issue, but surprisingly strength isn’t the only factor in competing in strongman. Height actually is just as important as strength. With competitors averaging between 6’6 to 6’8, 6’l seems like a Gary Coleman competing against Shaq. Strongman events such as the atlas stones and the fingal fingers cater to more towards taller competitors. Larry Wheels height or lack there of maybe his biggest obstacle.
