Dean Kennedy wins 95KG UK Strongest Man 2016
The Irish Strength Association would massively like to congratulate Dean Kennedy on becoming the new 95KG UK Strongest Man. Dean has been competing in the ISA for a number of years now and has came through the ranks progressively. Dean has been looking up to the other competitors in his area for technique and motivation to win titles. Dean comes from county Wexford where there are a number of Ireland Strongest Man finalists such as Nicky Whelan and Daniel Gannon. Training and competing with these professionals in the sport have helped Dean massively. After placing respectively in the Republic of Ireland Strongest Man, Dean was going into the UK contest with no expectations and was there for experience. However Dean is named the ”Dynamo”. He definitely was the ”Dynamo” on the day of the contest by gaining a number of personal bests when it mattered. Including in the duck walk and the daddy dumbbell. Dean saw off a number of strong Scottish competitors and was rewarded by lifting his first Xplosive Ape trophy. The ISA would like to thank the World Power show for hosting this prestigious event. The ISA wish Dean all the Celtic power from all our warriors from past centuries as he competes in Russia for the 95KG World Championships.
