Glenn Ross (Northern Ireland) won the IFSA "Britain's Strongest Man" competition yesterday at England's Alton Towers. Second place went to Steven Brooks (England), and third place went to Jamie Barr (Scotland). The event was a TWI/BBC effort, run in a format much like a scaled down "World's Strongest Man" competition. The contest was staged over a week, with four heats of six competitors each, and the top two from each heat went on to the finals. The final eight contestants then battled it out over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, for the Energizer Battery Trophy. Glenn Ross, by virtue of his victory, is guaranteed an invitation to this year's "World's Strongest Man" competition.
