In a sporting era of shortcuts and disgraced stars, athletic achievement is often greeted with collective cynicism. Feats-of-strength aspires to embody authenticity and evoke the unbridled joy and love of sport we all first experienced as children. 100 years ago Ernest Shackleton’s crew dragged longboats across Antarctica, over half a century ago a mile was run in 4 minutes, and in the 1970’s Ali Squared off against Frazier and Philippe Petit tightrope walked between the World Trade Center towers. As human beings we test ourselves and when you stare at an iron bar buckling with weight there is a simple truth to answer: Can you lift it?
Feats of Strength celebrates the genuine athletic achievement and inner might within us all.
