31st March 2014 - Posted by Rob Zydrunas Savickas followed up his recent victory at the Arnold Classic by regaining his Worlds Strongest Man title in Los Angeles.

Savickas won the title in a thrilling finale on the atlas stones, eventually finishing just half a point ahead of Icelandic giant Hafthor 'Thor' Bjornsson and three points ahead of previous champion Brian Shaw.

Savickas has now won Worlds Strongest Man a total of four times, further cementing his place as one of the all time greats in strongman.

British competitors Terry Hollands, Ed Hall and Laurence Shahlaei finished in 5th, 6th and 9th respectively.

Funding now stands at £1.8 million, and was reinstated after British Weightlifting proposed a new strategy with the focus on developing leading female athletes, such as Zoe Smith, in order to challenge for medals by Tokyo 2020.

17th March 2014 - Posted by Rob Ed 'Machine' Hall took the Britains Strongest Man title on Saturday, securing victory in one of the strongest line-ups in British Strongman history.

Graham 'Bixby' Hicks took second position, with 2013's winner Laurence Shahlaei in third.

With Worlds Strongest Man 2014 beginning this coming Saturday, some competitors including Terry Hollands did admit to taking the competition slightly easier than they otherwise would have, but this shouldn't take away from the final positions, with the progress of both Ed Hall and Graham Hicks over the past year being particularly impressive.

29th August 2013 - Posted by Rob Richard Looney, Irish Strength Association Vice-chairman, has released a detailed response to allegations made by Australian strongman Derek Boyer regarding this past weekend's Master's World's Strongest Man competition where competitor Simon Flint suffered a serious knee injury during the car roll event.

Boyer claimed on Facebook that he pulled out of the event due to TV production being put before athlete safety - claims which Looney and others strongly dispute.

Looney claims that looking after Boyer during the competition build-up was 'like looking after Lady Gaga' and that he left the wife and daughter of Glenn Ross in tears after a confrontation with them.

See the forum post to read Looney's full response.

24th August 2013 - Posted by Rob American man-mountain Brian Shaw today reclaimed the World's Strongest Man title, beating last years winner Zydrunas Savickas into second place and Thor Bjørnson into third.

Shaw pulled a 445kg deadlift to take full points in the first event, before following up with fourth place in the overhead medley and second place in the atlas stones to finish the competition with a 3 point lead over Savickas.

British competitor Terry Hollands, who had started the day one point behind Shaw in second place, injured his back badly on the first event of the day, the max deadlift. He was unable to compete properly after this and unfortunately slipped down the placings.

Whilst Shaw was arguably the favourite going into the event, it is rumoured that he took a large quantity of food with him (figures vary from 90lbs to 90kgs) which could have helped him avoid the stomach and digestion problems that many of the other athletes reportedly suffered with the local food, hinting that preparation as well as his undoubted strength could have contributed to the victory.
