Laine Snook: Out of Rolling Thunder® World Championships

Laine Snook, the current world record holder on the Rolling Thunder®, has just told IronMind® that he injured his back and must withdraw from the Rolling Thunder® World Championships next week at the Mohegan Sun.

Just yesterday, when explaining what it took to excel on the Rolling Thunder®, Laine Snook said, "A good grip! Apart from that, I would say luck."

Lady Luck must be on winter holiday because today Snook told IronMind®: "I am going to have to pull out of the contest [as] I trained last night and have damaged my back to the point that I am currently unable to stand up. I really am devastated not to be competing; I was looking forward to mixing it up with the best, but unfortunately that is not going to be possible. I truly am sorry that I will not be able to lift, but I cannot lift in the state I am in.

Could you wish all the competitors good luck, and let them know that I will be looking to re-claim the world record when I finally get back to my best. I am just going to have to wait for better times.

Once again, I really am so disappointed not to be there next week."
