Somehow, I managed to get backstage and watched on the sidelines, and the next thing I knew Eddie Hall was standing next to me, so nervously I asked for a picture (you kinda feel a little intimidated when you are surrounded by Strongmen). The hard part was that he had just finished his world record, so his thoughts were in another place (but he kindly did it anyway). The adrenalin rush that he would have feeling, having is picture taken with the likes of me would have been the least of his overall thoughts, but I am grateful that he did take the time to do so.
The next thing I knew, I was getting pushed back AGAIN - only this time I actually didn't have anywhere to go, so I apart from the security guys I saw Arnie up, close and personal. I then turned into one of the those crazy fans (not quite screaming), but reaching my hand out for him to shake, and to my upmost surprise, he looked me in the eyes and shook it, even now just writing about it does not seem real.
How amazing my day was, these are some of the reasons why I love keeping healthy and fit.
