Spectators at the Alaska State Fair on Sunday cheered on professional strongwomen as they competed in five events, some with an Alaska twist like a weighted dog sled pull and 50-pound salmon toss. The top two competitors in three weight classes qualified to compete in the Arnold Pro Strongman 2020.
