Jake Grisewood, a 2013 graduate of Alfred State College’s building trades: building construction program, recently showcased his strength against competitors from around the world in the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio.

According to an article in The Spectator, the event attracts about 22,000 athletes from around the globe to compete in dozens of different events, ranging from weightlifting, bodybuilding and foosball, to fencing, pole fitness, and arm wrestling.

Grisewood, who now works at Duggan and Duggan General Contracting as a project manager, started his powerlifting career about five years ago, the article states. While competing at the festival, he set a new personal record in one of the categories.
