Thumbderbird1 Clinches Mens UK Title
We have lift off! Thumbderbird1 Triumphs to Men’s UKTW Championship
“Thumderbird1” AKA Gareth Newman, Lowestoft, Suffolk, conquered all that came before him to become the Men’s UK Thumb Wrestling Champion 2009. Thumbderbird1 battled through each match, with nearly each of his rounds going the full distance. But after a long afternoon’s Thumb Wrestling, Thumbderbird1 was certainly a deserved winner.
Mr Newman, would only class himself as a semi-professional thumb wrestler, but he had his younger brothers putting him through some gruelling training schedules in the weeks prior to the championship, and all that hard work and commitment certainly paid off for Thumbderbird1. The defeated Thumbertaker [aka Jed Bellis], was glowing in his admiration for his defeater, “I thought i had him on several occasion, but he kept wriggling out of my pin-moves, eventually i tired and he got me on 2 reverse pins. He was a worthy winner and I wish him all the luck in the future.”
Thumbderbird1, walked away with a load of love & kudos from the crowd, the Winners Trophy as well as a £100 goodie pack from event sponsors www.TheRandomShop.co.uk
I am so happy to have won the Men’s UK Thumb Wrestling Championships. My brothers have been putting me through my paces these last few weeks so i am glad that all that hard work has pulled off”, “I am already looking to being the figurehead of Mens Thumb Wrestling in the UK & i am looking forward to the challenge of defending my title in the 2010 championships and possibly getting involve on the American thumb wrestling circuit too ” – Thumbderbird1
