David and Elizabeth Horne: Double Win

David and Elizabeth Horne won with ease at the second stage of their World’s Strongest Hands contest this past weekend as 93 competitors had fun going at it in multiple locations—competing on Horne’s adjustable gripper and three of his pinch grip devices, with all the results counting toward both the contest win and the overall title.

“I was very pleased with my win,” David Horne told IronMind, “but watching Elizabeth win her class, and break the Two Hands Pinch Lift world record with 80.24 kg, whilst being 8 months pregnant was just mind-blowing.

“There are some very strong young athletes coming through—it's an exciting time for the sport!,” said Horne.
