Donald Dinnie: The First Sporting Superstar – Iron Game History – July, 2002

As David Webster has shown so many time, the Scots are fond of strongmen. Of all the Caledonian supermen, however, none could ever compare in strength or stature to Donald Dinnie. Even in Dinnie’s lifetime, he was accorded a place as a national hero, and after his death he has continued to be respected and admired for the many feats of strength that he performed. This is a lively account of an extraordinary athlete-a man who was skilled as both a wrestler and a professional strongman.
