Britain’s Strongest Man 105kg - Event Write-Up

Posted in 105kg, Events on September 26th, 2008

Many thanks to Dave Archer of Sculptures Gym in Seaford, East Sussex for this excellent write-up of the recent Britain’s Strongest Man 105kg 2008 event.

He decimated the competition which had turned up to challenge the defending champion. It was an outstanding day, watching 11 competitors line up from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. It was the final showdown of the top 11 athletes qualifying from many rounds held all over the country. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Double Scott!

Posted in 105kg, Events on September 24th, 2008

On Sunday 14th September, Scott Reid gave it 110% to retain his Britain’s 105kg Strongest Man title at the Downs Leisure Centre. Despite some controversy over the scoring in the Viking Press, Scott hung on to the title by just a 1/2 point margin over friend and training partner, John Hobson. Jason Talbot (winner of the 105 at London’s Strongest Man) came in an impressive 3rd. We’d all like to thank the event sponsors - Wave Leisure Centres, The Builders Club and Physio Footprint - for the valued funding allowing this excellent event to take place. Here’s to 2009!
