RNC student strongman Chris’s day didn’t quite go to plan when a back injury struck during the England’s Most Powerful Man competition on Saturday. But despite continuing back pain, Chris fought on, completing all of the heavy lift events and coming in at a very credible 15th out of a field of 30 competitors. Chris was the only competitor with a visual impairment – he was registered blind at four years old – and the competition was held upin Doncaster, West Yorkshire.
Chris put in a fantastic performance under difficultcircumstances and, following some well deserved rest and recuperation, will be back in training at the RNC’s student gym – for which he is fundraising – giving it 100%, ready for the next challenge.
