Ultimate Strongman UK 95kg & 110kg 2016 Final - 2/7/2016

Our two gladiators from the ISA 2016 were Dean Kennedy, Co.Wexford and the 2015 110kg Ireland Strongest Man winner Ivan Gannon, Co.Sligo.

The Irish Strength Association would like to congratulate Ivan Gannon on winning his first 110KG class UK title.  Ivan Gannon all year has been competing at the senior heavyweight class and has proved by placing 4th in the Ireland Strongest Man 2016, that he has the arsenal to win any battle.  After winning the 110KG Ireland Strongest Man this year Ivan was walking into the World Power Show with a lot of confidence.  However, Ivan was up against a tricky line up of competitors, including a UK Strongest Man finalist John Pollock.  Ivan used this to raise his game and that was what brought him over the line.  John Pollock pushed Ivan to the very end with John finishing all of the stones and becoming the 20th man in history to do so.  On the hand Ivan did what he needed to do and that was to beat John in this weak events such as the incline log.  John did everything he could but it was not enough.  Ivan proved why he competing in the UK Strongest Man by lifting the Xplosive Ape trophy. We would like to thank the World Power Show for hosting this prestigious event.  The ISA wish Ivan all of the best in his preparations for the UK Strongest Man Final.  You can book your tickets fot this event by going onto the Ultimate Strongman website:

The Irish Strength Association would massively like to congratulate Dean Kennedy on becoming the new 95KG UK Strongest Man.  After placing respectively in the Republic of Ireland Strongest Man,  Dean was going into the UK contest with no expectations and was there for experience.  However Dean is named the ''Dynamo''.  He definitely was the ''Dynamo'' on the day of the contest by gaining a number of personal bests when it mattered.  Including in the duck walk and the daddy dumbbell.  Dean saw off a number of strong Scottish competitors and was rewarded by lifting his first Xplosive Ape trophy.  The ISA would like to thank the World Power show for hosting this prestigious event.  The ISA wish Dean all the Celtic power from all our warriors from past centuries as he competes in Russia for the 95KG World Championships.
