“Unless someone tells me to stop or I die, I will be the World’s Strongest Man.” – Eddie Hall

If that statement doesn’t clearly highlight the passion Hall has for the world of strength sports, then I’m not sure what will. Personally, what truly sells me into supporting and following Hall is the sacrifices he constantly makes to chase his dreams.

In addition to Hall’s personal love and respect for strength, his competitors have an equal amount of love and respect for him.

“He’s just a BEAST!” – Hafthor Bjornsson

Whether it was his 500kg deadlift from this summer, or the videos that continually make our jaws drop, 2016 has been one hell of a year for Hall. It’s going to be exciting to witness what new feats he’ll accomplish in 2017.
