FITT Warehouse held its annual Strongman Competition on Saturday at Ashley Park, with participants competing in five events — the farmer carry, the log hang clean and press, the atlas stone tire and flip, the yolk walk and strongman medley pull and drag.


Athletes were given points based on their order of finish in each event, with seven points going to the winner in each category.

Stuart Bready won the farmer carry, the log-hang clean and press and the strongman pull and drag to earn the men’s lightweight title with 33 points. Bready edged Ben Brown, who finished with 32 points.


Brown finished in second place with wins in the atlas stone tire flip, and the yolk walk.


Andy Timm won the log clean and press, the tire flip, and the strong man medley and finished with 32 points to beat second place Andrew Turner who had 27 points to win the men’s middle weight division.


Turner took first place in the farmer carry.


Charley Cheney finished in first place in the men’s heavyweight division with 34 points after winning the farmer carry the long hang clean and press, the atlas stone and tire flip, and the strongman medley clean and drag.


He finished ahead of Tim Garmany, who was second with 30 points. Garmany took first place in the strongman medley pull and drag.
