KOTA KINABALU: Singaporean Ahmad Taufiq was crowned as Orang Kuat Sabah (OKS–Sabah’s Strongest Man) Challenge 2011 champ, yesterday.

The 2005 Singapore’s Strongest Man Challenge winner, steadily clawed his way back to victory at the Star City North–the official venue of the second edition of the challenge organised by Casero Events and the City Hall being the co-organiser, by defeating 17 other competitors en route.

Consistency was all that mattered to the 29-year-old Ahmad, despite failing to win any of the six challenges, he managed to place himself among the top four in five of the challenges, thanks to the other contestants who failed to win any points in the first challenge, the Truck Pull.

He finished second twice in the Tire Flip and Car Deadlift and was third in the Yoke Walk challenge.

Ahmad who finished fourth in the Farmer’s Walk and the Atlas Stone accumulated a total of 50 points and trailed his closest rival Honesty Ahandoi by a mere 1.5 points.

Honesty, who hails from Kudat, claimed the second spot with 48.5 points. He won the final challenge, the Atlas Stone and was second in Yoke Walk, and third in the Farmer’s Walk.

Early favourite Alfred Magabis claimed the third spot on 45.5 points. He finished fourth in Yoke Walk and was fifth in Farmer’s Walk.

Fourth placed winner, another Singaporean, Sulaiman Ismail was also on 45.5 points, but he decided not to go through a playoff and sportingly let Alfred take the third spot.

But the highlight of the event was all about the newly crowned champion Ahmad, who has shown great sportsmanship as well as professionalism throughout the showcase.

The 177cm-tall Ahmad, who is currently pursuing his PHD in Family Ecology studies at the Universiti Putra Malaysia in Serdang, Selangor, was modest about his victorious feat, before insisting that giving his best was all that mattered as it gave him the satisfaction in competing.

“I had (some training), but for whole of last week I have not because of my study. For me, study comes first and it is my priority. Earlier on, I had chest infection, and thank God I was okay. So passion brought me through.

“Like I said prior to the challenge, I did not come here to win. I just want to have fun and most importantly give my best.

“Competing in any competition it is not about other competitors, but it is all about me and it is very important to try and give my utmost best because I will be very happy if I’ve done that. If I’m winning then it is a bonus.

He is still uncertain whether he will be defending his title next time out.

“It is still early to talk about that. There are many factors that need to be considered like injury or training,” said Ahmad, who weights 116kg.

He was full of praise for the local athletes here as well as for the organiser Casero Events, especially on the technical side when some of the equipment broke down; they managed to repair them and the competition went unhindered.

He also pointed out that it is rare to see an Asia Challenge like this featuring traditional and classic strongestman challenge.

Datuk Masidi Manjun, Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, presented the prizes to the winners at the closing.

Masidi said the Ministry is ready to provide additional allocation to the challenge in the future should participation increases and attracts more neighbouring countries.

Among those present were Casero Events patron Datuk Johnny Mositun, Casero Events managing director-cum-organising chairman Steve Mositun and Event Promoter cum Technical Head Roger Frederick.
