The Bartlett strandpulling family.

Postby peter yates » Wed May 17, 2017 8:16 pm

Jim Bartlett and his family were at the forefront of the sport of strandpulling for many years. Jim was a weightlifter, contest organizer, gym owner as well as being a top strandpuller and strandpulling coach. His whole family were involved as can be seen from clip of their appearance on the Blue Peter TV show in the 1970s. I have written a full article on Jim and his exploits which will be posted on the site in the near future.

Great video Peter, thanks for sharing it, and I'm looking forward to your article! If this is addressed in the upcoming article then no need to answer, but do you know what the family is up to these days? Did Malcolm ever better the world record he set in this video?
