And this contest could produce a unique double: Elizabeth Horne could be attacking the women's world record, and Laine Snook could be attacking the men's world record.
Last year, Laine Snook not only proved himself as not just the strongest Brit on the Rolling Thunder, but also as the best ever worldwide, and showing that he had spine equal to his strength, he made this big pull as a follow-up to one he had made under squeaky clean, but still unofficial conditions - to get the record, Snook roared back and pulled the 274.2 pounds at a contest held at Pullum Sports, in Luton.
David Horne's contest is set for April 7, in Stafford, England and you can see full contest details on David's website.
