    Just got back from watching this.
     
    The winner of the competition was crowned the natural british strength champion.
     
    The winner of the log lift put up 110kg.
     
    Several guys got 18 reps on the 180kg axel deadlift and the winner got 20 reps.
     
    The event was a little dis-organised which is to be expected as it was the first of its kind.
     
    Next years comp will see 3 weight classes and also a qualifyer for the final.
     
    The winner and two random competitors are chosen for drug testing by the BNBF.

    Might be the first time I've heard of a natural strongman event I think

    What was the testing procedure like do you know?

    I believe there were 20 guys competing of all shapes and sizes.
     
    The company running the event (monster muscle) said that this was the first event of its kind.
     
    Some chaps from the BNBF had come down to do the drug testing right after the comp was completed. The winner and two names picked at random were tested.
     
    Look foward to seeing some MT guys competing there next year - I will be!
