Couples Strength Competition
WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Mitch and Lacee Hughes are a power couple. They're among the dozen strength athletes representing Team USA at this year's International MAS wrestling tournament in Moscow. MAS means "stick" in Russian. The goal in the competition is to try to rip a stick away from the opponent. Mitch says they've been training hard and doing some heavy lifting. Of course, they have to eat right, too. The Hughes tell the Williston, North Dakota, Herald they go through three to four pounds of meat a day and a couple pounds of salad.
