Doyle Overcomes Injury’s To Reach 299 Feats Of Strength

  • Venue – Stamina’s Self Defence Boxing Gym, B’ham.
  • Date – 23 July 2013

Paddy Doyle had to block out injuries to get closer to holding the historical 300 strength speed stamina title. For the last six months Doyle has been in constant pain. He is suffering from a badly torn shoulder, as well as bicep and hamstring injuries, which came about from his intensive training of mixed martial arts, boxing and his World Record schedule. He still managed to dig deep and once again broke the Guinness World Record for the most para jumps {burpees} in 1 minute carrying 100lb back pack; Following the Rules that the athlete must clear half of his body height as measured on the mat, and his hands must be flat on the mat on every repetition, the final count was 11 burpees.

Doyle said afterwards:

“I am looking forward to the historical 300 title, I have proved myself time and time again beating some of the top Guinness World Record Holders, some the hardest records were the martial arts / boxing records I remember very clearly the lumps, bumps,bruises,cuts and broken bones”.

The venue for the historical 300th title will be Royal British Legion Club, Berkswell Village on 17 August.

One day at the end of class, little Johnny’s teacher asks the class to go home and think of a story to be concluded with the moral of that story. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story.

Little Suzy raises her hand.

“My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road.”

When the teacher asked for the moral of the story, Suzy replied, “Don’t keep all your eggs in one basket.”

Little Lucy went next.

“My dad owns a farm too. Every weekend we take the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only eight of the 12 eggs hatched.”;

Again, the teacher asked for the moral of the story.

Lucy replied, “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”

Next up was little Johnny.

“My uncle Ted fought in the Afghanistan, and his helicopter was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed but could only take a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete. On the way down, he drank the case of beer. Then he landed right in the middle of 100 Taliban. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but then he ran out of bullets! So he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. Then the blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands.”

The teacher looked a little shocked.

After clearing her throat, she asked what possible moral there could be to this story.

“Well,” Johnny replied,

“Don’t fuck with Uncle Ted when he’s been drinking.”
