We’re not sure if it is his massive size, static strength or impressive hair that makes Eddie so memorable. At just 23 and with very limited Strongman training or experience Eddie achieved the title of the UK’s Strongest Man in 2011, a title he had held on to until 2016, being UK’s Strongest man every year in-between! He was also England’s Strongest Man in 2010 and 2011, and also Britain’s Strongest Man every year between 2014-2018 which is very impressive. Although Eddie climbed up within The World’s Strongest Man’s score board between 2012 and 2016, it wasn’t until 2017 that Eddie Hall won his first World’s Strongest Man competition!
A true showman, Eddie always puts on a performance that will either please or scare the crowd. Sporting a mohawk and a fearsome set of tattoos, Hall is undoubtedly a formidable opponent. Yet, watching him being interviewed for the World’s Strongest Man, he comes across as a softly-spoken gentleman which is boggling!
On static events, such as the squat, deadlift or viking press, Eddie can easily keep up if not surpass the greats within this sport. However, the events requiring more finesse and technique seemed a stumbling block for Eddie. Although this powerhouse lacked in his technique and finesse, He has gone on to prove himself with multiple wins along with winning the WSM competition in 2017.
His world records within his strongman career include;
Deadlift with straps and suit – 500Kg (1,102lb)
Axle Press – 216Kg
CrossFit Grace – 60Kg for 30reps in 50 seconds
Most recent achievement: Eddie Hall’s most recent achievement is his win at The World’s Strongest Man in 2017 along with his world record within The Axle Press which he achieved in the same year at the Europe’s Strongest Man competition.
Here is the footage of Eddie Hall setting his world record within The Axle Press event at Europe’s Strongest Man in 2017. You can see the RAW power that surges through this incredible guy’s veins:
