News from RSA. Yesterday’s Gateway Centre Strongman Show was another great success with an appreciative crowd, athletes pushing until there’s nothing more!!
Thanks to Gateway Lifestyle Centre and their office staff, our main sponsor BUCO for their stunning Ryobi power tools prizes, the competition shirts, also for funding Elite Sporting Engagements, the other businesses involved, especially Coastal Timbers and my ever willing wife Michelle Q Kruger for her capable judging and scoring. And grateful to run these events under the banner of World Strongman. Thank you to our local newspaper photographers like Taylum Meyer for capturing our events.
