Sweating it out for the coveted title of World Strongman

34-year-old Aman Vohra is over the moon. His dreams of qualifying for the World Strongman Games 2019, has come true after years of hard work. Sounding ecstatic, he tells us, “For me personally, qualifying is a great achievement. I know how hard I have worked all these years just to get into this championship.

Born and educated in Dehradun’s Scholars Home and a graduate from DAV PG College, Dehradun Aman entered the world of body building in 2000, moving up the ladder.

Finally Uttarakhand’s ace strongman has become the first and only Indian to be selected amongst 230 athletes from 21 countries for the World Strongman Games, 2019. Telling us more about the upcoming event from 1st to 3rd of November in Florida, United States of America, Aman fills us “the strength game involves a lot of hard work and dedication, which though, a rave in Europe and USA, is still fighting to get its due in India.”

Since the year 2013, Aman has been pursuing his passion with a single-minded pursuit of making it into the World Strongman Games, 2019. In a run up to the event, Aman went to Finland in the year 2015 for the Strongman Games, and won the bronze in 2016 at the  Arnold Classic Amateur Strongman Asia in Hong Kong, Strongman Championship.

Putting in over two hours daily, Aman splits his training into endurance, cardio and strength training, keeping in mind his strict diet that requires him to stay under 90 kilograms. “I fall in the under 90 kgs category, so I have to pay special attention to my diet and limit my carbs, proteins and limit calories.”

A junior and close associate of Aman had this to say about him, “he is hard working, determined and been a mentor and guide to me as well. I wish him all the best for the upcoming championship.”

And so do we.
