A PRESTATYN man has taken part in Wales’ Strongest Man Competition.

Andrew Griffith, 31, who temps for QI Staff, took part in the competition in Cardiff on Sunday in the open which saw some of Wales’ top competitors go head to head.

Andrew, who trains at DL Fitness, Rhyl, has already competed in three competitions since beginning the sport just over a year ago.

Andrew said: “I’ve made really good progress this year – I’ve had nine personal bests already just in the gym. From where I was a year ago to where I am now is really good.

“I came twelfth out of 14 this year – this was better than last year. I’ve learnt a lot and I’ve definitely progressed in the right direction. It was fierce and strong competition and these people have been doing this for years.

“I’m now going to be training more and trying to get stronger for next year – next time I want to push for a top spot, maybe fifth or third.”

Julie Lloyd, Consultant at QI Staff, said: "Temporary workers are extremely important to our business and our clients businesses and so we do our upmost to look after our people working on temporary contracts, so when Andrew told us he had been invited to attend the competition, but wasn’t sure if he could due to the expense, we were of course, keen to help.

"Andrew has worked for us in a temporary role for a long time now and we were very happy to be able to give something back."
