LMC Student Success at Strongman Competition
Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) student Kurtis Cusimano, age 18, has recently competed in a national Strongman competition.
Kurtis, who is currently studying Level 3 IT at LMC, started at Salt Ayre Sports Centre aged 13, and after a year, started training for Strongman.
Kurtis entered the England’s Strongest Junior competition last year at age 17, but unfortunately came last out of the 9 entrants. Kurtis said “It was tough last year. Losing was hard to take but I never thought about stopping”.
Kurtis entered this years’ competition for North Devon’s Strongest Man for ages 16-24. The competition required an Over Head Log Lift of 113kg, a 240kg Deadlift, a 260kg Super Yoke Run over 40 metres, a 40 metre Farmer’s Walk with 123kg in each hand and a Keg Race starting at 3kg and varying. Kurtis told us, “I promised my family that I’d re-enter and finish in the top three”. There was 8 people competing in this year’s competition in Ilfracombe, North Devon, and Kurtis finished in first place.
After his amazing success, Kurtis said “I want to thank everyone who has supported me, particularly my family, friends and eveyone at the gym!”.
