Imperial Sponsee and local legend Rob Frampton is gearing up for 2015 and is competing all-round the country this year.
First up is The Giants Live British Open Championships, Saturday 14th February 2015. The strongest men in the UK will battle it out over 6 six events to see who is Britain’s Strongest Man 2015 with the top 3 qualifying for Worlds Strongest Man 2015.
In March we’ll see Rob across the pond in Australia for the Arnolds. This year looks to be the biggest and best yet! The classic EXPO at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be the largest sport and fitness EXPO to date. The Entertainment areas host the Arnold Strongman Classic and prejudging for the Bikini International and Figure International competitions. Other highlights include Australia’s Strongest man, Arnold Weightlifting & Powerlifting, Arnold Arm-wrestling, the Arnold Amateur Bodybuilding finals, Cross-Fit and more.
In April, we get to see Rob a little closer to home and just down the road from Imperial HQ at Southampton Guildhall. The competition quite rightly titled ‘Legends Live 2015’ will take place on the 18th April. The very next day in Northampton, Rob will be hosting a one day seminar of strength. Which is also just down the road from our newest branch located on Bedford road in Northampton.
Performing at the top level for over 10 years, Rob has competed at UK's Strongest Man, Britain’s Strongest Man, Worlds Strongest Team, Strongman Champions League, Various Giants Live Qualifiers, Worlds Strongest Man 2011, as well as being the undisputed South Coasts Strongest Man, he has a wealth of experience to share.
May 30th we see a huge clash of the titans in the Worlds Ultimate Strong Team! If the title doesn’t impress you, the line up sure will! Rob will be teamed up with fellow ‘Pirate’ Graham Hicks. Graham has only been competing in strongman since 2010 but has taken to it like a duck to water and now has many titles under his belt. They will be battling it out against the likes of Eddie Hall – 4x UK’s Strongest Man and Worlds finalist! Laurence Shahlaei – 2x World’s Strongest Man Podium and 2 x Britain’s Strongest Man. These two, dubbed the ‘Saxons’ seem a force not to be reckoned with. Other big players set to compete are Brian Shaw, David Ostlund, Hafthor Bjornsson (Who also stars in Game of Thrones as Gregor ‘The Mountain That Rides’ Clegane), Martin Wildauer and many more!
