Qualified as the first reserve when someone from the top 9 from englands finals couldnt do it...
In theory in this comp the top 105kg strongmen from scotland, wales and northern ireland would join the top in england to battle it out.
But in practise because the competition is all way way almost in France (in Kent), very few will make the trip.
I will though! Feels like a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Its very heavy and hard though
