UK’s Strongest Man returns to Stadium MK
Stadium MK is set to play host to UK’s Strongest Man over the Platinum Jubilee Weekend, 3rd – 5th June 2022
UK’s Strongest Man, known as the toughest strongman competition in the world, made its debut at the stadium this year in front of 12,000 strongman fans, selling out on 2 out of the 3 days of competition. It was the biggest strongman event ever held!
For the 2021 competition, held last year, 16 athletes took part in some fantastic strength tests which included:
- Pushing 15 tonne trucks
- Lifting and flipping cars
- Pushing motorbikes above the head
- Legendary Atlas Stones of Strength.
In the end it was the huge 200Kg Welshman, Gavin Bilton who won the title. Bilton only won one of the five events but never placed worse than fifth in any event showing his consistency in an enthralling battle which delighted the fans of Milton Keynes.
Last year the competition wasn’t the only entertainment of strength on show. In addition to Bilton winning for a second consecutive year, the contest saw a strongwoman deadlift world record attempt by Lucy Underdown. The brit successfully lifted 300kg, the first strongwoman to deadlift that milestone. The record has since been beaten by American Becca Swanson (310kg) but could there be a return in an attempt to bring back the record the Great Britain in 2022?
The three day event will include fun activities for fans of all ages to take part in, including the famous Ardblair stone challenge where participants get a chance to try and lift as many of the atlas stones as possible in the fastest time, with prizes being given out each day.
Tickets start from just £8 for Children, and packages include Meet & Greet, VIP Meet & Greet Lunch and even an exclusive tour of the Competition stone with a famous strongman.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday 16th September at 6pm and are available from MK Dons Box Office on (01908) 622922, or online via www.ultimatestrongman.tv/tickets
