Members of the Easter Ross Area Committee today (12 August 2021) praised “inspirational,” brothers Tom and Luke Stoltman for their outstanding achievements in the Scottish, UK and World Strongman competitions.
Chair of the committee, Cllr Fiona Robertson and Cllr Maxine Smith presented the brothers with an inscribed quaich in recognition of their success.
Tom Stoltman won the 2021 World’s Strongest Man Competition in Sacramento, USA, in June this year, becoming the first competitor from Scotland to win the competition.
His brother Luke has also been recognised for his successes, having been crowned Scotland’s Strongest Man five times.
Cllr Robertson said the pair had very much put Invergordon “on the map,” and added:
“Cllr Smith and I were honoured to present Tom and Luke with a small token of appreciation on behalf of Members of the Committee and the people of Easter Ross.
“They are truly remarkable men, and it was lovely to meet them, along with some members of their family.”
“They are truly an inspiration to all of us and are such wonderful ambassadors for the Highlands and Easter Ross.”
