It just was posted on Facebook.
Very well-done! A very slick production done by their sports channel!
They seemed to like me as I’m in it quite a bit during the show and intro and credits. It’s edited quite a bit to make it in the 30 minutes and fit as many guys in and highlight them.
They did a good job.

As you will see, I was in the class...against able-bodied big guys (mostly developmentally disabled) with full use of their legs. I competed in the standing class thinking the wheelchair class was strictly for para athletes. Actually they were athletes with different types of physical handicaps. This Oct., I will compete in the seated/physically disabled division. However, I DID shine in the Hercules Hold event. Broke the record in fact. You can see this event starting at about 16:00 minutes.

OK came in 2nd by 1 point! in WORLDS STRONGEST DISABLED MAN.
The guy who won had been competing in this event for 11 years so don't feel as bad then. Good for him winning finally then! He went to China in 2008 (I think ) for the para lympics in powerlifting.
Won crucifix hold and Hercules Hold today. Got all 4 dumbbells in the Press Medley easy but was slower in the wheelchair. $#!+!
Pressed the last db 2x to make a show for the crowd. EASY! EASY!
They love me there and got a lot of interviews too.
We were back n forth event wins the whole show and I think the tie in the log press is where I lost it overall. If I would've locked out ONE MORE REP! I would've fixed it.

Got back Monday night and getting back to normal here after the big trip.
Lots of pics and video on Facebook.
