Hang on for dear life! Galway Strong Man Challenge
This Strong Man Challenge has been on Shop Street, Galway for a few weeks and is attracting large crowds. People can win €200 if they can hold onto the bar for 2 minutes without falling off, and it costs €10 to try your luck. This unfortunate man was just a mere seconds away from winning but eventually fell. There was a large, enthusiastic crowd gathered and you can see their encouragement and cheering as they though he was going to win. The con or trick is that the bar you hold onto has an inner bar and if you relax your grip the outer bar begins to slowly rotate.
