The same could have been said for Weightlifting had it started now, while I think it's a factor I don't think it's the deciding factor as you're making out here.

Like I've said already it has been given a very strong nod by the Olympics here in the UK, by authorising a series of 'Olympic Strongman' competitions. So it's at least in the beginning stages, we'll have to see how it pans out over time. The Strongman scene is large in the UK and very well represented at all levels, with some amazing athletes at the 80kg, 90kg, 105kg and open categories.
