On Sunday the 10th of September Martin was lucky enough to be invited to the North East Strongest Man competition. The competitors here are of a different level than Martin has previously been competing against as many of them have competed in UK Strongest man.
In a performance far surpassing the practical failure that was Northwich, Martin actually ended up ranking 5th out of 11 competitors, beaten by just 1.5 points from 4th place, and by just 2.5 points from 3rd.
