David completed 3 unassisted lifts of the Dinnie Stones at the Potarch Cafe & Restaurant. His lifts were witnessed by Brett Nicol, Jim & Rosemary Splaine, Brian Irwin, Gary Bunting, William Kingsberry, Malcolm & Christina Nicol and Helen Knowles. A large crowd of spectators and press were also present
Davy, from Belfast, Northern Ireland bravely stepped up to the mark to pit his strength against the Steens and attempt to carry them across Potarch Bridge at The Gathering. Davy is a training partner of Brian Irwin. Having had a hugely successful lift of the Steens behind him in February earlier the same year Davy was hoping to emulate his comrade’s success. Unfortunately, a muscle injury picked up in training a few weeks earlier didn’t allow him to lift to his full potential, however even with his injury he still managed a very respectable attempt carrying the Steens approx. 1/3 of the distance. Davy will no doubt be back, injury free and complete the job.
