Great Britain’s Eddie Hall has achieved his lifelong dream of becoming the World’s Strongest Man after victory in Botswana. ‘The Beast’ Hall, the first Brit to win the title since Gary Taylor 24 years ago, beat Game of Thrones’ side Hafthor Bjornsson into second and four-time champion Brian Shaw in third.
Victory in the Viking press, squat lift and deadlift rounds paved the way for his success that came as a shock to many. Eddie Hall’s manager Mo Chaudry, said that he is ‘pleasantly shocked’ and ‘very proud’ with Eddie’s historic win, reports the Stoke Sentinal. “Eddie has been dreaming about this for the last five or six years of his life. He had to be on the money, his training has been relentless and his dream has come true. “In one round he finished fifth so for him to come back from that, whilst competing against some of the legends in the World’s Strongest Man tournament is amazing. “These guys at the top aren’t amateurs anymore- they are full-time pros and are national giants- people like four time winner Brian Shaw.” Source; Mirror Online
