Actor; Maybe Dwayne Johnson now, but David Prowse (darth vader) is worth a mention even though he is dead now.

Singer; 50 cent sounds about right.

don't be so quick to kill off Dave Prowse.

As mainstream gyms go Virgin is probably the best of a bad bunch in Glasgow.But there is currently a rather nasty and prolonged outbreak of ILS (imaginary lat syndrome) the symptoms also seem to include extreme loudness,verbal diarrhea and an inability to put weights away. So long as you wear your flip flops in the changing area you may escape it.

Strongmen are like buses-you wait for one for ages and then four all come along at once. This qualifier will be remembered as the year of new faces. Good all round performances from just about everyone. No slackers.No prima-donnas.Great atmosphere ,good crowd and as expected from the Master Blaster Stuart Murray and crew another well thought out and well executed professional comp.
There’s a new kid in town and his name’s Luke Stoltman, big, strong, athletic and although lacking comp experience, non too shabby in technique. His arm over arm and shield carry being especially impressive.
Thomas Parkes,still a junior,although he looks like he’s been in long trousers for some time, also displayed incredible potential and really looked like he was nowhere near flat out throughout the whole day. Despite a couple of little novice mistakes like a missed dumbell rep, a dropped deadlift and twenty second break for cramp during the arm over arm he easily coasted into a half point off third place. His 185kg stone load was the easiest i’ve seen and had the 210 been rolled out i’d have fancied his chances at loading that too.
Newbie number three was Mark Hunter,looks like he could be Nathan Jones’s wee brother, Mark was outstanding and just didn’t really put a foot wrong the whole day,again his arm over arm was flawless, only about two seconds behind Luke in an event that only about 7 out of 22 finished.
Next-the Milky Bar kid Nick Foxall. At only 20 years old this baby faced assassin has truck loads of potential. I’ll say it right here-this guy is another Marius, but only if someone takes him in hand and actually does some serious event training with him. 8 solid reps on the 280 deadlift. Despite doing the loading event like a house-wife who’d won a 90 second trolley dash through Tesco and stopping the arm over arm with 6 inches to go and 10 sec still on the clock he still secured a 6th place, a place which in no way reflects his true potential.
So that’s the 4 new faces,elsewhere John(IRON FIST) Hutton had a stand out day with 11 reps on the deadlift-no straps,”never used them” says John,good stone run, consistent throughout.
Stevie Cherry, who no doubt came to the comp expecting just to have to look out for Ken, appeared to take his foot off the gas a little when he saw his nemesis faltering, could not have expected the performance that came from Luke.
The big surprise of the comp has to be the current champ’s failure to qualify. Ken,it has to be said has had a bad year last year, out with a detached bicep. He started off with an explosive first event taking 2nd to Stevie, and from the shield carry on it all seemed to fall apart-cramp in his back, cramp in his hamstrings, and even on the stones we could all see his hand and wrist cramp up. So perhaps some diet or hydration problems he’ll have to sort out.
Conventionally, somebody at some point pulls out the final. So with 14 places and Ken sitting in first reserve we will see if he draws inspiration from Rocky Balboa “it ain’t how hard you can hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep going forward” and bounce back to fight for his title.Either way the final is looking interesting and the Scottish strongman scene a bit healthier.
On a side note, the comp within a comp for best beard was closely fought between Gary and Brian, Brian won by a whisker.
Well done everyone, sorry if i didn’t mention you, you all did great.
Roll on the final.
Full final scores to follow.

martinb said:I remember on the old one the competitors had to do a really endurance based entry test, lots of running, and chins, so basically you ended up with dweebs that Shadow could snap in half

On the recent one, one of the Gladiators was huge and bearded, then he turned up in the WWE even huger

the entry test back in the day,for the original series i mean, was 800metres on the treadmill in under 2mins 30secs for guys, 1 minute rest, 10 full underhand chins with a pause at the bottom,1 min rest, then straight into rounds with the pugil stick. pretty tough really. if you scored high only then you had to have a personality test. I remember a guy i was at uni with got top marks, beat just about everybody at the trials,but he has zero personality so never got chosen.

Are there any strongmen who have been in the game a few years and HAVEN'T torn a bicep?

was it not Frank Connelly and Bren Powers? i think Bren tore his bicep.
