Rich Takes First At The Ministry

Posted in Events, UKSM on June 5th, 2008

Rich Gorvin takes control of the Axle LiftThere’s no stopping Rich Gorvin - ask his Dad, he tried hard enough! After recently nabbing a wild card spot for next weeks BSM final at Minehead, Rich kept his pedal on the gas to clinch first place at last Sundays Southern Qualifier for UK’s Strongest Man 2008, held at the Ministry of Muscle Gym in Aylesford, Kent. Big Paul Carter grabbed a well deserved second and Paul Cater - in only his second open class competition - grabbed a further qualifying spot with a solid third place. Following disappointment at the BSM qualifier, Enzo Martino digged deep to grab fourth on countback (from Rob Frampton) and will join Rich and the two Paul’s at the UK Strongest Man final later this summer. Full write up and more photos will follow real soon.
