Canberra Crushed! November, Australian Strongman Championship Clean Sweep

Hosted by “Tarton Warriors Promotions” the stage was set for a reckoning. 4 of the best current strength athletes Australia has to offer.

Tested over 3 worthy strength tests:
• 130 kg (each hand) farmers walk for distance
• 280 kg Anchor Drag
• Stones of Strength (165 kg biggest)
The 3 other competitors fought well but none better than Craig Reid from Newcastle. He is a very determined competitor who pushed me on every event, however I managed to win all 3 events and maximum points for the win. Camaraderie was great and a great sense of support and encouragement between the guys was terrific to see.

Note: Big Ben Maddon of Adelaide is the new kid on the block and will be someone to keep an eye on for the future.

1. Derek Boyer
2. Craig Reid
3. Michael Sidonio
4. Ben Maddon
