An old-school strongman – when they used to be big and hairy. Well, maybe they weren’t all hairy – but Capes certainly was. A bear of a man. Originally a two-time Commonwealth champion shot put thrower Capes made the move into Strongman and proved to be a dominating force, winning World’s Strongest Man twice.
In retirement Capes has remained actively involved in the sport, often appearing as a guest referee or commentator. But all else pales in comparison to the man’s bird breeding skills; which are apparently unrivalled!
