Dutchman Alex Moonen today took the title of 'Sugdens Strongest Man' after a closely fought battle between several impressive lifters. Going into the stones, the final event, ex-olympic lifter Karl Grant had a 1 point advantage over Moonen, who himself was only 1 point ahead of Mick Ashurst.
Moonen produced a dominating display on the stones, loading all five to secure the title. He was followed in second place by Catts Gym regular Mick Ashurst and by Karl Grant in third place.
Karl Grant took the 'performance of the day' award given that the competition was his strongman debut. Other highlights included a rapid overhead medley by local favourite Mark Clegg.
