Sheffield Arena is fast becoming a yearly pilgrimage for Strongman fans across the UK. Fans from all corners of the country descend upon the northern city to witness the biggest and best of British Strongman go head to head for the most respected and hotly contested national prize on the planet- Britain’s Strongest Man!
With the dubious honour of being the last Strongman arena show in the UK before venues abruptly closed their doors, our British stars are raring to go once again for a shot at glory. By September, Adam Bishop will have reigned as Britain’s Strongest Man for 18 months, the longest the title has been held uncontested since Jimmy Marku won in 2008, with the competition not being held again until 2012.
All eyes will be on the newly full-time strongman- Bish has been a stalwart of the British scene for several years now, consistently qualifying for World’s Strongest Man and winning the British title in 2020 whilst holding down a full time job as S&C coach for Harlequins. Having hung up his rugby boots, Bish will be hoping to step up his performance once more in an attempt to stay ahead of the new kids on the block.
Tom Stoltman proved himself deserving of the hype surrounding him in 2020- finishing 2nd at Britain’s Strongest Man and a mightily impressive 2nd at World’s Strongest Man. The Scotsman showed that he’s putting all the elements together into a consistent package. If he can smooth out those few final bumps in the road, you’d be hard pushed to name anyone that can come close right now. Don’t forget Tom’s brother, Luke, too! A man who is one of the strongest men on the planet but is surely the driving force that keeps pushing the World’s Strongest Brothers - the mighty Stoltmans - further in this incredibly tough sport.
Another Luke to watch for British glory is ‘The Future’, having secured a shock Europe’s Strongest Man win at Allerton Castle in 2020, Luke Richardson is barely a year into full time strongman and is looking to prove that victory wasn’t a one time fluke. At just 23 years of age, Luke Richardson still has a lot to learn about the sport of strongman- but the youngster has already proved himself a formidable prospect for his rivals.
A scintillating battle it is shaping up to be, and we haven’t even mentioned former champ Graham Hicks, the evergreen Mark Felix, Terry Hollands or the possible return of Laurence Shahlaei! With 4 Brits making the final heat of World’s Strongest Man in 2020, we haven't seen a Britain's Strongest Man lineup this strong in living memory.
The title of Britain's Strongest Man is wide open in 2021.- expect an intense atmosphere, jaw-dropping feats of human power and a sporting spectacle you will never forget!
