More on the Inver Stone

Stone lifting aficionado and lifting history buff Roger Davis wrote to IronMind®, “Firstly, congratulations to Andy Cairney on his magnificent press of the Inver Stone - he made it look easy.

“Just to let you know, Andy is in fact the sixth person to have pressed the Inver, not the fourth,” continued Davis, supplying the following list of those who have succeeded in getting the Inver Stone overhead:

1. Bill Kazmaier
2. Hamish Davidson
3. Francis Brebner
4. Laine Snook
5. Sebastian Wenta
6. Andy Cairney

When this subject came up several years ago at a World’s Strongest Man contest, Bill Kazmaier - the man who dropped jaws by being the first man to lift overhead the stone that many others would have been happy to hoist waist high - was nonchalant about his performance.

Nodding toward a group of World’s Strongest Man competitors, the Kaz told Randall Strossen, “Any of these guys could do it.”

Anyone else lifted the Inver Stone overhead?  If so, please let me know.
