    WINNERS - Strongest of the weak ones

    Whilst it's highly doubtful that anyone reading this thread isn't aware of this competition, but just in case you aren't, check out this thread - Strongest of the weak ones - Official Thread

    This was the first online lifting competition we have run and there were some very good prizes up for grabs! Just to remind everyone!

    We had 32 lifters officially enter the competition of which 14 submitted videos of their 3 lifts by the Sunday 6th December deadline. So, quite a few people dropped out for one reason or another but we still had some very good lifts submitted.

    ok, so enough of me waffling on, you really just want to know who won right?
