Imperial Car Supermarkets believe in sponsoring the biggest and best achievers in sport, and one of those is Rob Frampton. He is off to Melbourne in a few days time to compete at "Giants Live" with the hope of qualifying for the World’s Strongest Man (WSM). The huge 4 day expo devoted to bodybuilding, strength, power lifting, strongman and all things fitness, will see some of the top strongman athletes competing against one another. Rob is the only Brit taking part and he says he really likes the pressure to get into the top 3 and get himself to the World’s Strongest man finals.
Rob tells us that last year he missed out on a WSM place due to an injury sustained competing at London’s strongest man. (He had dropped a 160kg metal cylinder onto his foot breaking 3 metatarsals!) Rob has made sure that this year will be different with help from his sports physio Dan Munday, who has been treating him all winter by working on his spine and core, making him much stronger and more mobile.
Every year there's 4 to 5 WSM competitions around the globe enabling athletes to qualify for the World’s strongest man, which is the absolute pinnacle of the sport. Rob qualified for WSM in 2010 & 2011, so to get back to his former level of strength is his sole focus. The WSM competition takes place between the 4th and 6th April, at The Australian Fitness and Health Expo.
