Well done guys. Choose your flavour from this page or this page, and send me a PM with your name and address.

 

 

Now for our main prize winners. We ran two draws here - one for the boys, and one for the girls - and this was based on your lifts, so one entry for every kilo pressed.

 

The winners of $500 worth of Horleys supplements are...

 

**drumroll**

 

Wookie and Brooke! Congrats to you both. I'll be in touch with more details about your prize shortly.

 

To those who didn't win - there's always next time. ;-)

 

Finally, a huge thankyou to Horleys for sponsoring this challenge. It makes it a lot of fun when there are prizes as awesome as this to play for. You guys are awesome.

Definitely do that, Brooke. We'll be cheering for you and the team! :)

 

In fact, why not start a topic here and let us know how you're going? I think it would be interesting to read.
