Once again the big crowds gathered and the strongman also. Garned with traditional Scottish kilts we took to the field, five “stones of strength”, the biggest weighing 165 kg for us. “A Reckoning” Mike Sidonio made a determined and solid effort but faltered with the last stone. Craig Read the strongman from Newcastle went better posting just over 30 sec to complete all 5 stones. The pressure was on!!! Adrenalin pumped and ears pinned back I let fly. 20 sec’s later I sat a new Bundamoon stone lifting record beating my previous best. The 25 thousand crowd is generous with applause and makes all the hard alone hours of training worth while.
