Balsall Common strongman Paddy Doyle sets 596th record

Solihull Editorial 14th Feb, 2018   0

WINTRY conditions failed to stop Balsall Common strongman Paddy Doyle to achieve his 596th career strength speed stamina World record.

A mixture of sleet and ice made the 15km off road cross country course a challenge for Paddy which was already tough as he was carrying 60lb back pack over the footpaths and bridleways of Lapworth – all in a record-breaking time of one hour and 55 minutes.

He said: ” I am only four strength speed stamina record and challenges to go to clinch my 600th physical fitness title.

“I will have to stay focused making sure I will be injury free as the next three challenges will be very hard.




“But with the support from my team and sports remedial therapist I will be 100 per cent ready.”
