Men from our province are often featured in Strongman contests. Their physical strength was, and still is, a source of pride. The Musée québécois de culture populaire in Trois-Rivières even had an exhibition last year explaining the keen interest we have with this sport, entitled “Flesh and Muscle, The strongmen phenomenon in Quebec.”
