Men’s Athletic Open at 2017 IPL APEX II, the IPL’s Year-end Pinnacle Championship Event, in Sacramento CA on November 19th had Silas Hopkins for the win. A great feat, indeed, as he went up against IPL Men’s Athletic Open Pro James Niezen. Not only is James already a Pro (yet, had not competed as an Open Pro at the time of APEX) he is also a Men’s Athletic Masters Pro Champion.
Although Silas surely earned his win, it was definitely close. And, with James scoring a full nine points higher than Silas in the Conditioning round, things could have gone the other way. But, in the end, Silas was able to pull ahead by a four point margin, overall. And, with that, Silas Hopkins was welcomed into the IPL Pro league.
We are pumped to see how Silas will stack up with the likes of IPL Pros Alejandro Sigala, Zack Smith, Solomon Taylor, Steven Perez, Andrew Kang, and Pro Champions Zyrian Apurillo, Jason Lubag and Angel Aulet. Michael Brooks Photography.
