Super Strong – Well done Ben!

Ben, who facilitates students at Cadbury College entered Bodypower Expo at the NEC on 14 May 2017.  There were 84 entries in the world’s strongest Novice event and all competitors had to compete in the following:

80kg Log for reps in 60secs
207kg car deadlift for reps in 60secs
100kg in each hand farmers walk over 40 metres
300kg yoke over 20 metres, and
110kg stone over yoke for reps in 60secs  (that’s 17.3 stones in old money!)

Pictured is a very happy Ben meeting with his inspirational strongmen.  Ben managed 8 lifts of the atlas stone.  We are proud to say Ben finished 22 overall in the competition and is now in training for another competition held in June.. watch this space!

Sparkling Coursework!

Hollie Gudge as part of her A2 product design coursework made a ‘spike-tecular’ necklace.

Limited by the materials and the facilities in the College Workshop, Hollie didn’t want to stop there, so Philip Webley (teacher) arranged for Hollie to have a one day hands-on workshop at a local Jewellers.

Proprietor, Kevin Bassam has 3 shops, Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Stourbridge. He is a well-known and an established jeweller for repairs and commissions. He thoroughly enjoys having students to pass on his jewellery making skills. 

Hollie jumped at the chance and made a beautiful silver ring for her A2 product Design manufacturing coursework AQA PROD 4.

 

Super Students, Super Facilitators @ a Super College!

Not only do we have super student (Deanna Dawkins) who won 3 silver medals in the European Classic Championships Powerlifting in Denmark in March but we have our very own super facilitator (Ben Smith). 

Ben, who facilitates students and helps them with their studies, will be putting down the writing materials this weekend to pick up something a little bit heavier on 14 May.

Ben has been training as a strongman for the last 2 years and hopes to get even stronger in the future.  This weekend will see him compete at the NEC, Birmingham.

Ben will be lifting cars and atlas stones as well as carrying the equivalent of a big baby elephant on his back.

He will be competing against 80 other international strongmen at the BodyPower Expo for the chance to be one of the world's strongest Novice strongmen.
