Here is the 2003 South African Strongman Champion:


...and with third-placed Gerhard...

Some more random shots taked during the competition:

Me and my training partner, Pieter Dave relaxing
Etienne Johan, Pieter and me
Pieter and chief-man Gerrit Big-man Dave Cooks
Gerrit Badenhorst starting his singing career Gerrit
Sunset on the banks of the Oranje River Pieter's calluses ripped off
Gerhard at breakfast Dave and Pieter

All-in-all I believe this was a hugely successful competition. I am honoured to have competed against athletes of this caliber. Thanks to Gerrit Badenhorst, SASU, the Eiland Resort and the Kalahari Kuierfees.
