LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's strongest fitness enthusiasts met Saturday at the Kentucky International Convention Center for the Kentucky Muscle Show.

Professionals and amateurs participated in body building, physique, arm wrestling and strong man competitions. The event was originally held at Spalding University with only a few hundred people in attendance.

"Now, we have access to thousands of competitors, with countries being represented from all over the world," said Brent Jones, the spokesperson for the Kentucky Muscle Show.

WDRB News' own Marc Weinberg also presented the award for the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness Men's Physique of the Year.
