The Arnold's 2015 was pretty wild.
We saw world records being set, then broken. With Arnold himself on hand to see fellow Brit Eddie Hall's world record deadlift, who became the first human being to ever pull 462kg (1018.5lbs). The crowd in Australia went wild.
A week earlier over in Ohio, at the US Arnold's, there was a Villain on the loose. Villain Barbell Club's very own Jenn "The Tank" Tibbenham was putting her stamp on the Strongwoman competition, shattering personal bests left right and centre.
The competition was fierce. The Tank didn't make it through to the finals, but she vowed to be back next year better and stronger. Jenn told me,
"I never thought I would get to the Arnold's, It seemed too far away from what I was doing athletically... it was one of the best days of my life. It felt like I was going to the Superbowl for my sport [Strongwoman].
I met Mikhail Koklyaev at the competition, and he asked me, "Is it your birthday today, because you look really happy?" It wasn't. But what can I say, competing in Strongwoman lights me up like a christmas tree. I can't wait to go back next year."
The whole crew down at Villain Barbell Club are proud of her. We have no doubt that she will be on fire next year at Arnold's 2016. But before that The Tank has the British Nationals, and the United Strongman World Championships to sink her teeth into.
