Yesterday saw the “IAWA Southdown Strongman Challenge” take place at the picturesque village of Thakeham in West Sussex. Local man and all round good guy - Matt Starling - not only put on and competed in the event, but also organised the entire Thakeham Village Day around which this event was staged. Matt is seen here completing the gruelling tractor pull, one of only a handful of the 16 competitors to complete the course. Read on for the results.. Read the rest of this entry »

All I can say is that we were there for the heats and the final and we got some great shots of this remarkable event, but you’ll have to wait till September to see them!
There’s no stopping Rich Gorvin - ask his Dad, he tried hard enough! After recently nabbing a wild card spot for next weeks BSM final at Minehead, Rich kept his pedal on the gas to clinch first place at last Sundays Southern Qualifier for UK’s Strongest Man 2008, held at the Ministry of Muscle Gym in Aylesford, Kent. Big Paul Carter grabbed a well deserved second and Paul Cater - in only his second open class competition - grabbed a further qualifying spot with a solid third place. Following disappointment at the BSM qualifier, Enzo Martino digged deep to grab fourth on countback (from Rob Frampton) and will join Rich and the two Paul’s at the UK Strongest Man final later this summer. Full write up and more photos will follow real soon.
