Ultimate Strongman Competitors Come to Richard Taunton!

24th May 2017

Two of the strong men who will be competing in the Ultimate Strongman competition, on 10 June at St Mary’s Stadium, will be joining us at college on 8 June to show us what they are made of! 

Dimitar Savatinov is one of the best log pressers in the world and fresh off the plane from this year’s World’s Strongest Man competition. UK strongman legend and five times UK Strongest Man, Glenn Ross, will be accompanying him. 

Both will demonstrate their incredible strength by lifting a variety of exceptionally heavy objects (!). They’ll also take some time out to chat to students and teachers about their experiences, what it’s like to compete at such a high level and how they go about preparing for these high profile competitions. Best of luck to them both on 10 June. We hope they manage to break a world record!
