Worlds Strongest Man & Motivational Speaker
Eddie Hall is an inspirational and motivational speaker and is a former winner of Englands Strongest Man, as well as winner of the Worlds Strongest Man in 2017.
Eddies story is one of utter sheer determination and has dedicated his life to reach to the top of his career, never letting one setback or another stop him.
He is the currently the only person ever to deadlift half a tonne – 500kg!
His journey began as a championship swimmer while working as a truck mechanic, all the time working out how he could achieve his dream and become the worlds strongest man.
To get where he wanted, he knew he had to work hard, and his journey saw him tear ligaments, burst blood vessels in his head, and even an eyeball popping out of its socket. His diet had to right too and needed to eat over 10,000 calories a day to get to his peak performance level.
In 2014 Eddie retained his UK crown, but added Britain’s Strongest Man to his collection, and finished 6th in the World’s Strongest Man. In 2015 he finished 4th in the Worlds Strongest Man, but a year later, became the first person in history to deadlift an astonishing 500 kilograms. A feat that may never be repeated.
Having finished third in 2016’s World’s Strongest Man shortly after his record-breaking deadlift, Eddie was one of the favourites going into 2017’s event in Botswana a year later. In the final standings, Eddie edged out Iceland’s Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson by just a single point to claim the crown.
Eddie Hall has gone from being a truck mechanic to a superstar and hopes his story will help others see what can be achieved through dedication and hard work.
