Eddie Hall

  • Nationality: British
  • Height: 1.87m
  • Weight: 146kg

We’re not sure if it is his massive size, static strength or impressive hair that makes Eddie seem older than his years. 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 held on to in 2012, along with competing in the World’s Strongest Man qualifiers.

A true showman, Eddie always puts on a performance that’ll either please – or scare – the crowd. Sporting a mohawk and a fearsome set of tattoos, Hall is undoubtedly a formidable opponent; yet, watch him being interviewed for a World’s Strongest Man VT and he comes across as a softly-spoken gent – the mind boggles!

On static events, such as the squat, deadlift or viking press, Eddie can easily keep up if not surpass the greats of the sport. However, the events requiring more finesse and technique seemed a stumbling block during 2012 – something we’re led to believe is being worked on for 2013. Here’s hoping a bit more event training sees Eddie become a champion worthy of his charisma!
