Brief About the 6-foot-8 Strongman Winner: Tom Stoltman

Tom Stoltman, 29, was born in Invergordon in the Scottish Highlands. He was inspired by his brother Luke Bernard Stoltman's success as Scotland’s Strongest Man after which he started taking weight training in a local gym as a teenager.

"I watched World’s Strongest Man on TV a few times when I was young, but I was more interested in football at that point."

"I started going to the gym at 16 with some mates, but it was just a bit of fun, nothing big."

People have given him labels as “The Albatross” and “King of the Stones” but he prefers “The Albatross” more than the “King of the Stones” because of the reference to his massive physique and wingspan.

He said, "I don’t really care about being ‘King of the Stones, I just want to be ‘King of the World,’ and that’s what I’ve done this weekend.”

Stoltman Victory Past Record

Tom has participated in six World Strongest Man competitions.

His rankings are very impressive.

  • 2019: 5th Position
  • 2020: 2nd Position
  • 2021: 1st Position
  • 2022: 1st Position
  • 2023: 2nd Position
  • 2024: 1st Position


For the audience and the judges, it was unexpected results and astonishing performance from the competitors. Stoltman was unbelievable though! 
Draped in the Union Jack, he collected his World Strongest Man trophy. After conquering the Atlas Stones event, he looked like a relieved man. This was the moment it was confirmed he was the World's Strongest Man once again.

World's Strongest Man 2024 winner Tom Stoltman reminded everyone how many times he has won this prestigious title. Between the two days of lifting and moving in the 2024 World's Strongest Man finals, he led the field and almost won it all. He secured the title by taking the first position in his signature event, the Atlas Stones.

“I want to be the greatest,” Stoltman said.

“I don’t even think I’m at my prime.”
