The Beast, from Clayton, made history after becoming the first Briton to win the competition since Gary Taylor in 1993!
Eddie won the squat lift, viking press and deadlift events, and the final scoring went as following:
- Eddie Hall
- Hafthor Bjornsson
- Brian Shaw
Eddie Hall has also officially retired from competition.
