Other information PIE MASTER
In February 2014 he was the winner of a charity pie-eating contest in Cardiff, Wales, for the second year in a row. "I aimed to eat at least eight pies to beat my record of six and a half last year [2013], and obviously I wanted to retain the title. I'm really pleased to have succeeded on both fronts and that it was for such a good cause [a hospice in Cardiff], but I'll definitely be upping my swimming training." (South Wales Echo, 04 Mar 2014)
