Britain's Strongest Man 2024 took place last week. Here are all the latest results including who was Strongest Man (WSM) last year.

As per the WSM official website, the competition is designed to push the Strongmen to their absolute limits, challenging not only their physical strength, but their agility and mental toughness too.”

Our very Tom Stoltman from Invergordon in Scotland, was in the running for both WSM and Britain's Strongest Man in the most recent events. In 2022, he represented Great Britain in the popular contest and even won it on his 28th birthday - a true cause for celebration.

Alas, heavy is the crown even when held by the strongest of us all, that said here are the 2023 results of the WSM competition and the recent 2024 Britain's Strongest Man competition.

Who won the World’s Strongest Man 2023?

In the 2022 contest, which Tom Stoltman won, he took place as a last-minute replacement and yet he still finished eighth place which is commendable given the circumstances.

What’s more, that was not only his first appearance in the competition but appearance in any international competition as a professional, truly impressing the fans. According to Bar Bend, Hooper has one simple yet powerful philosophy: “Lift heavy. Be kind.”
