It is one thing to be fit, and a whole other thing to be strong. On Saturday, February 26, 2022, 12 of the top lifters from Great Britain will attempt muscular feats that would crumble most men. The purpose, of course, is to earn the title of Britain’s Strongest Man. For the top three finishers, an invitation to the World’s Strongest Man this coming May is also in store. Five events will put the men to the test in this display of gigantic proportions. It all returns again to Sheffield’s Utilita Arena for the fifth-consecutive year.

Strong men have been attractions for thousands of years, with strength competitions dating back to 6000 B.C.. Previously finding roles in circuses or “freak shows”, these mountainous men have found roles on the big screen as well. Iceland’s 6’9”, 323 lb Hafthor Bjornsson is one of the most-recognizable former competitors, playing the role of “The Mountain” in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
