On ESPN Colin has presented a series based on the World Strongest Man concept called the World Strongest Man Super Series. This project ran from 2003 to 2008 when Colin hosted the final night at Madison Square Garden.

Referee

This was when I was refereeing the wrestling at Britain's Strongest Man 2008. I was doubling up my role as presenter and producer for this Channel Five series. Refereeing these 25 stone behemoths was a daunting task. Luckily, they all played by the rules and there was no 'extras'!

Olympics

This was from 2002 at the Salt Lake City Olympics. I am pushing at the back and Neil Scarisbrick is driving. It was a good time; but sadly we came home without a medal. Be thankful for small mercies I suppose - at least we didn't crash in front of the World's media... and we did beat Jamaica!

The Abu Dhabi Adventure Challenge

This was a crazy endurance event that i got to present for Cummunity TV. I still don't know how I got this gig but it was just amazing. We started down on the stunning Corniche of Abu Dhabi City where the 200+ competitors did a triathlon to start ion day one before heading to the Liwa Desert and trekking an amazing 120km across these stunning red dunes.

Luckily, the very cool French TV Director Jaques and myself were able to ponce around the desert in a helicopter... The Liwa desert is the largest expanse of unadulterated sand dunes in the World. The red colour comes from Red Oxide in the sand. And if it looks hot it was - a mere 40 degrees Celsius in the shade and about 50 in the sun.
