WSM Athlete Darren Sadler talks to us about big plans for 2012

WSM has caught up with Darren Sadler to find out a little more about his new role in promoting Europe’s Strongest Man.

So Darren what have you been up to recently?

I have been really busy pulling together a Europe’s Strongest Man event which will be held at Headingley Stadium, Leeds on the 23rd June.

What are the plans for 2012?

I want this show to be one of the biggest in the UK for Europe, and that has been the main focus. We have a great venue with up to 6,000 seats, one of the best UK line ups of athletes already confirmed and we have managed to secure a great prize of a brand new Pick up in the UK market called a Great Wall Steed.

So why become a promoter?

My love of the sport means that I want to raise the profile further and ensure the UK sees and gets opportunities to stage world class events. I will be attending and refereeing  each of the qualifiers.

1 winner from each of the three qualifying events will be going to the Healingly Leeds final of Europe’s Strongest Man:
