    I have GED to thank again for motivation. Would never have imagined these numbers when I created this challenge. I managed around 17+ minutes and just kept swinging. My hands started to blister and I hadn't contemplated that. The way this competition is going we will need to figure out how to eat and drink while swinging this bloody cannon ball. The steak and wine was awesome sand served as good motivation when the hands started to ache.

    AndyWeaver: Video exceeded the YouTube limit so I broke it into two parts. First is about 15 minutes, actual video is over 18 minutes with 17 minutes of actual figure 8's. Some overlap of the two videos.
    GedMustoNumber1: PHENOMINAL!!!!!....Nothing much more to say, that was one brilliant challenge, may give this one final try And but it won't be for some time to come...;)
    GedMustoNumber1: Excellent job Andy..Great challenge though i'm going to give this a try with my 20kg and coming in at the 68.5/69kgs mark should be able to post up a decent score...looks hideous though mate..
