Our newest Monkey Athlete, Dale McPherson has recently returned from Ohio, where he competed in the Arnold Strongman World Championships, Under 80kg Lightweight Men.
After the first day of competition, Dale was in 3rd place, with only a few points splitting the top positions. Unfortunately, following on from this Dale tore his hamstring during his deadlifts. He somehow managed to power on amazingly to complete the final event. Even with a torn hamstring, Dale came an incredible 5th overall and was 0.05 seconds behind 4th place.
Here at Monkey HQ we're all extremely proud of Dale and congratulate him on his highest place in an international competition so far, we know there are even bigger things coming...
Dale owns 3D Strength, his own Strongman/Strongwoman and Powerlifting Gym in Darlington. You can find him on Instagram @3dstrength
