Mateusz Baron, like most strongmen, is extremely… strong but, unlike most, Baron has been at it from a very young age. Mateusz has won titles in his native country of Poland and even managed a cheeky spot at World’s Strongest Man in 2012 but has otherwise yet to make a substantial impression on the international scene.
We think with a bit more experience, Baron will start to come out of the rather large shadow of his Polish team mate Krzysztof Radzikowski, who has so far claimed considerably more medals worldwide. Baron won his Pro card at the Arnold Armature Strongman World Championship in 2014
Although Baron competed within the 2013 and 2015 strongman competitions, we did not see him come out of his shell until 2016 when he won his first ever Strongman Champions League, battling against his Romanian competitor Vladimir Comorovschi in the deadlift event. This SCL competition took place in Romania.
Since then Baron has competed well within The Arnold Strongman Classic competition, here are his placements over the past few years:
2016: 4th Place
2017: 4th Place
2018: 4th Place
2019: 3rd Place
Although these placements are not any record breakers or winning positions, this shows that Baron is still giving it a good go! Within the near future, there is rumours of Baron being one to watch out for!
Most recent achievement: Baron’s most recent achievement has got to be his win within the Strongman Champions League in 2016 as this Polish Powerhouse quoted “This was a dream for me”.
Here is some footage of Baron lifting 445Kg in The Hummer Tyre Deadlift event within the Giant Live Kartuzy in 2012. Although this clip audio is in Polish, we have chosen this clip as this shows the Polish Powerhouse using all his mighty power to lift up this incredible weight. This is no world record but it is still a huge amount of weight with some incredible dedication used:
