Terry Hollands confirms last attempt at Worlds Strongest Man

This morning English giant Terry Hollands confirmed that he would be having one more shot at the Worlds Strongest Man title.  After the disappointment of  injuring himself in last years final, there were a lot of rumors that Terry would be hanging up his lifting straps and quitting the sport.  This morning though Terry announced on his ‘Facebook’ page hollandswsmtruck

“Been doing a lot of thinking while in egypt. Time to knuckle down when I get back and really push for wsm title this year. #nostoneunturned”

“I owe it to myself to give it one more good shot. Last year I felt it was snatched from me due to food poisoning and torn bicep, I need to be able to walk away knowing I had my best shot d if thats not enough then so be it”

Terry has been the fans favourite for years and this news is bound to please strongman fans around the globe.

Simon Thomas fights back to win Wales strongest Man U105kg

This past Sunday’s Wales strongest man under 105 was a really close affair with eventual winner Simon Thomas taking the win on count back over his training partner Neil Evans.  Simon the winner in 2011 lost his title to Anthony Griffiths last year and was desperate to make up for it and take the title back from his fellow South Wallian.  After the first two events Simon was in last place with poor performances on the Deadlift and Axle press but he managed a dramatic come back winning every event from there on.  Simon was quoted after the 2nd event as saying if it wasn’t some of my kit being used I would be going home now, but he was very glad that he stayed with a great run in the yoke race Simon then doubled the distance of his nearest rival with a massive 75m on the 160kg sheild carry. Simon then won the farmers walk and the atlas stone that gave him the narrowest of victories but crowned him Wales Strongest man under 105kg 2013.

Well done Simon from all the team at British Strongman!wales105
