It’s been a good while since we’ve posted up anything on the S&P blog. Things have been absolutely CRAZY over the last 6 months but it’s been a wild ride! Anyway, we thought we would get things cracking again by recapping what was a most totally excellent day last Saturday; UKSA. Here’s how s**t went down!
We had a grand total of 53 athletes who rocked up on the day in the pursuit of becoming ‘UK’s Strongest Athlete 2012’. The atmosphere was AWESOME (we didn’t expect anything less)! People came from far a field as Cardiff and Edinburgh and boy did they bring it! The cool thing is the event has doubled in size since last year and we can’t wait to make next years UKSA even bigger and more baddass!
The winners in each category:
Ladies – Sarah Jones
Under 90’s – Nas Al Jafari
Over 90’s – Martin Mrzena
It was damn close but in the end these guys emerged as victors and it and well earned victors at that!
Other notable performances were from Connor Rice who’s battle with the medley was epic to say the least. It brought the house down when the 140kg sled finally crossed the finish line! Sarah O’neils display of technique and brute shoulder strength in the Axel Clean & Press was a thing to behold while returning Over 90’s champ Liam McCrea displayed tremendous heart, soldiering on in the farmers walk despite picking up a back injury!
We had a great time hosting such a kick-ass group of athletes and we’re looking forward to 2013! We will be sure to release details of dates as soon as we have figured out when it’s going to go down again so make sure you stay posted to our Facebook and Twitter pages.
