‘Dring, dring, dring!’ My alarm started to ring. It was the day to find out who was the strongest man in town. I had been lifting 120 pounds standing up and 300 pounds lying down, so this should’ve been easy. Eventually I got to the place and there were about 15 other opponents. I was first up so I walked over. I got the 25 kg in my right hand and I started to lift. It was heavier than I expected and next thing I started to hyperventilate so I couldn’t do it.
