Setting Higher Industry Standards

Higher Standards

In a recent interview, Kyle Dosterschill, the owner and founder of Hunger in the Wild, was asked, “What’s the reason behind all of this?” Read his response down below.

“Our goal is really simple; we strive to create an inspiring atmosphere that leaves a memorable impression on everyone who attends, this goes for both competitors and spectators. This is exactly why we give out prize money, and it’s also the reason we invite such high level athletes.

Our inspiration and motivation come from our true love for the sport. We want the sport to grow and we’ve taken it upon ourselves to grow it. We believe that the best way to promote growth is to continuously raise the standards and set higher expectations for all weightlifting competitions and events.”

We'll Get Back to You Soon!
