Despite losing a few competitors through injury and other urgent commitments we still had 25 people taking part.....9 did the Old Time Strongmen set of three lifts and the other 16 competed in the full Strongman set of six events.....and a gruelling set it was too. I was very proud of all the contestants but in particular of Selina Dorn, Selina was not only there with her Paragon team representing Jason's club, but with her two wonderful boys Seth and Stan who were just a delight to be around...and I just know Jason would have been looking down and bursting with pride. A big well done to everyone who took part in the events and especially to the Champions In the Overall Strongman event: the ladies Under 60 Winner was Nadia Silva the ladies Under 80 Champion was Chloe Brennan with Selina Dorn as Runner Up and Tasha Macauley was the ladies Over 80k Champion. In the Mens Under 80k the Winner by one point was Rory Hoad with Luke Davis as Runner Up..... Mens Under 100 kilos Champion was Pete Tryner with James Gardner as Runner Up and Mens 100k plus Winner was Webster Reid with Matt Jones as Runner Up. I would like to thank Graham Saxton Don Gardner and Paul Barette for their tremendous help loading and judging all day....... The 2016 Viking Strongman was a great hit once again, thanks to the wonderful competitors and great crowd of supporters!
