Superb on the viking especially. If you look back a year or so, the distance you've come is just unreal.

thanks mofos. Had to take today off work, back is f**ked. I hurt it in the second event, deadlift attempt, but the comp adrenaline and so on masked it pretty well. Cant really even walk now lol! It will be ok in a day or two.

heres a pic of how close that stone was, GUTTED!!!

PorkPie is right - not about the meat part, but about how the top 4 were in a class of their own. I would say there were kind of three groups/classes of guys, and currently i am in the bottom third. next year i want to be in the middle layer, and eventually take on the BEASTS in the top layer, but thats far off and might never happen.

f**king enjoying this meanwhile anyway, so no stress.

vids (couldnt make a cool combo vid, sorry):

viking press:


yoke:


medley:


I saw someone taking vids of Mick As work, was that your mate Porkie? Hope to see them one day!

Great photo, surely a quick head-butt would have finished it off?

He often says that. Sometimes it has lasted as long as three quarters of a session!

Saying you were in the bottom third, class-wise, is a bit harsh on yourself mate, i'd have put you in the middle tier from what i saw for sure. You put on a good show in a field where a number of, no doubt, more experienced competitors were failing completely on most events!!!

Great work Mick and Joni!

Mick should be winning comps like this next year, as we all know.

Joni - you were in a heavy, open comp that you qualified for and you didn't come last - I'd say that's good progress. Solid goal of top 5/6 next year. Viking press and Yoke looked very strong and you looked like you were doing well on tham medley too until you got to the barrel.

Onwards and upwards chaps! Look forward to getting some good off season training in with both of you guys.

Well I was there yesterday and enjoyed the comp. There was an abundance of neoprene, beer and burgers on a sunny Bank Holiday in Northwich. Someone had decided to let the local council estate out judging by the number of fat slags tramping around with bottles of WKD in one hand a fag in the other.
thats where my sisters went told me they were in blackpool. great lifting joni and the rest
Happy Happy
