Announcing the 2009 Octogen Novice Strongman / Strongwoman competition.
Strongman is taking off in Australia and this competition is an opportunity for first time strength athletes and athletes from other sports to have a crack at the challenges of strongman competition without the monster weights ot the higher level shows.
So if you are a powerlifter, policeman, crossfitter, olympic lifter, thrower, rugby player, fireman or gym junkie then this comp is for you!
Also, not forgetting the women we'll be holding a strongwoman comp on the same day
