Darren Sadler has moved in to the World of Promoting. The former U105kg World Champion who has had a very successful decade in strongman has decided to get involved in promoting. This doesn't spell the end of his sporting career but after a couple of injuries and a new gym he has been enjoying a hiatus from the sport. His next step is to help Giants Live put on one of the most ambitious shows to date. Headingly Stadium in Leeds (Home of the Leeds Rhinos) will play host to Europe's Strongest Man on June 23rd 2012.. With Big names Terry Hollands, Laurence Shahlaei, Vytautas Lalas and Stefan Solvi Petursson already signed up this has the makings of a classic event. TICKETS ON SALE IN JANUARY
For European athletes outside of great Britain and Ireland invitations are being sent out on previous performances. However, one of the major elements in making this one day contest happen is the qualification process that will lead up to it for the athletes inside the UK and Ireland. Here is the information for athletes from England (invite only), Scotland (Open), Wales /Ireland(Open):

First IDFPA deadlift competition will be held in Bandon Co Cork on 10th March. This would be an ideal event for someone thinking of getting involved in powerlifting competitions to get started with.

There might be a few interesting battles also if anyone can down to spectate.
