Unlike your rack pulls, I have absolutely no critism for your push press.



Good job man!!!

Also - I like the confident comments/signals at the end of your reps. Good showmanship.

I was going through some old footage last night, yes I'm bored, and I came across the video of Troy Thompson tearing both of his knees at the 2007 Ontario's Strongest Man comp on the car deadlift event on day 1. This was a horrific accident for any that were there as we all listened to the screams of pain and some helped Troy as we all waited for the ambulance to come...20 min later it arrived. I believe that Troy tore his patella off on one knee and tore his ACL in the other!!! This was my first contest and was a real example of what can happen occasionally in strongman. I was up 2 guys after Troy and was pretty scared of lifting the car after this.

I remember hearing that he couldn't walk for 6 months afterwards. Does anyone know if he made a full recovery?

Wow, I wonder how/why that happened exactly. I can see why you'd be pretty nervous stepping up to that event after witnessing something like that. I kinda wish I hadn't even watched the vid.

As far as I know, he was operated on by a doctor from the Ottawa Senators and did make a full recovery. He trains people out of his gym in Sudbury.

I remember his feet were in the wrong position , also I belive this was his first time doing this .is it possible his tendons and ligaments were not strong enough?
