Geoff Capes Strongman video game

Geoff Capes Strongman

Like many people, you probably think that there is no video game for the strongman sport.  Not true!

In 1985, Olympic shot putter, World and European Strongman and World Highland Games Champion Geoff Capes was honored with a very unique video game to his name.
