Today saw Joe Strike collect the Tendring male sports personality award at a ceremony held in Clacton. He was the runner up last year and with his continued improvement and success in competition managed to go one better this year. It is a testament to how hard Joe has worked over the last year to improve on his lifting while also maintaining his bodyweight which has at times been a struggle. This had followed a tremendous weekend at the Rotary Club Championships where Joe performed well as was awarded the most improved male athlete award based on his performance from last year to this.
Joe is now hoping to set his sights on taking his competitions to the International level assuming he can get selected and raise the funds needed to attend. Such a new goal will certainly keep Joe motivated on those cold winter evenings in the gym.
