Shop success in Wales

The Shop, winners of the 680kg gold medal in Wales

The Shop, winners of the 680kg gold medal in Wales

The Shop Tug of War club travelled to Wales last weekend to compete in a Welsh league fixture which was hosted by Llanboidy. The lads from Tipp enjoyed a very successful trip competing in all four weights and winning the gold medal in the 600kg & 680kg competitions. Six teams competed in the 600kg competition as the Shop defeated Dolfor in straight ends in the final to win the gold medal. Five teams competed in the 680kg event, the last competition of the day. Once again the Shop pulled very well and once again found themselves in the final against Dolfor. This was a very entertaining final which was poised at and end a piece and with both teams on two cautions in the deciding end it was the Irish spirit that won out as the Shop went on to win their second gold of the day.
