The World’s Strongest Man ?

Post by Bearguy » Tue Aug 04, 2020 10:35 pm

Ok, just for fun and something a little different...

Through Lockdown I’ve been watching a ton of World’s Strongest Man videos on YouTube, Sky, etc....there are some good ones I found through sky from channel 5, with about 6 episodes which include, famous events, history, famous duels, and legends of the sport.

My question to any other strongman fans out there, who do you consider to be the greatest strongman of all time ?

I have picked listed a handful of the household names, who would be your choice ?!

I just picked the household names fella, there are plenty of other strongman such as Mark Henry who is not listed so throw those names into the ring and let’s have some crack !

Unbeatable in his pomp was Big Z, he would have been my second choice, I opted for Kaz....ANIMAL !

Had the pleasure of going to Europe’s strongest man a couple of years back at Leeds, was a cracking day out, would highly recommend to anyone interested in seeing true strength and grit !

Taff, have you watched the Eddie Hall YouTube video of the behind the scenes footage when he won WSM ? When Colin Bruce asks the athletes if they have any questions about the events.......Big Z chimes up ‘What colour plane?’ 🤣🤣🤣
