UK’S STRONGEST DISABLED MAN at t rac ted c rowds at Naidex 2014


MPEY SHOWERS, the UK’s leading wetroom company, welcomed its sponsored strongman, Gary Clarke, to wow the crowds at Naidex National, the


UK’s largest independent living exhibition in April. Ahead of an international disabled strongman


competition which is being held in June, in Iceland, Gary Clarke, demonstrated his strongman capabilities by performing two of his most dramatic strength exercises, the atlas stones and crucifix hold. Gary exceeded his target of 30 seconds, on the crucifix hold, by bearing weights of 15kg for 60 seconds and completed nine repetitions of the 50kg atlas stone. Gary performed these awe-


inspiring strength activities while seated in an Impey SlimFold shower seat capable of bearing weight of up to 47 stone (300kg). Gary, who is a carer for people with learning


disabilities, was first inspired by strength sports after watching a similar event at Naidex a few years ago. 36 year old Gary, who has cerebral palsy and walks with the aid of crutches, has participated in international disabled strongman competitions for the


past three years, representing Great Britain. After smashing numerous personal bests in 2012 and 2013, Gary is officially Britain’s strongest disabled man. It is Gary’s extraordinary will power and determination that christened Impey’s involvement in Naidex National 2014 ‘The Show of Strength’. Gary, who experiences


difficulties with balance due to his condition, has a vision to break disability stereotypes in the strong man arena by proving that a disability does not have to hinder sporting achievements. He also wants to encourage other disabled people to get interested in strength sports and for Great Britain to have increased representation in international strength based


competitions.
