Tom Stoltman Wins 2024 World’s Strongest Man

The return of the king: Scottish strongman Tom Stoltman is the official winner of the 2024 World’s Strongest Man (WSM) competition. Stoltman reclaimed the title from 2023 WSM winner Mitchell Hooper on Sunday, May 5, 2024, after four days of thrilling competition in Myrtle Beach, SC.

This year’s win marks Stoltman’s third WSM title (2021-22), thanks to his remarkably consistent performance across the contest. Stoltman tied with or placed higher on all three events on the first day of the WSM Final, setting him up for success on Sunday.

Of a possible 60 points in the 2024 WSM Final, Stoltman scored a 53. He never finished lower than third place in any of the Final events.

Tom Stoltman World’s Strongest Man History

Stoltman won his first competitive strongman event — Highlands Strongest Man — when he was just 18 years old. Since then, Stoltman (now 29) has racked up more podium finishes than he knows what to do with and forged a reputation as one of the sport’s most ferocious competitors.

Here’s a breakdown of Stoltman’s official placing at every WSM competition he’s attended:

2019: 5th

2020: 2nd

2021: 1st

2022: 1st

2023: 2nd

2024: 1st

Stoltman qualified for the 2017 WSM in Gaborone, Botswana, but did not reach the Final.

If not for the unexpected (and unexpectedly rapid) rise to prominence on the part of Canada’s Mitchell “the Moose” Hooper, Stoltman would have celebrated this year’s win as his fourth consecutive WSM title.

In addition to his stellar performances in strongman’s most prestigious contest, Stoltman also bears a host of other accolades:

Three appearances at the Arnold Strongman Classic, including a third-place finish in 2024.

Eight Giants Live event appearances with a first-place finish at the 2023 World Tour Finals.

Two silver medals at the 2021 and 2023 Rogue Invitational.

Three gold medals, one silver, and one bronze from Britain’s Strongest Man between 2017 and 2024.

Five appearances at Scotland’s Strongest Man; Stoltman finished second from 2015 to 2017, and won back-to-back the next two years.

A Big Day for the UK

Tom is now the first Briton to win three WSM titles — before his victory in 2022; it had been 37 years since British athlete Geoff Capes had bagged two victories for the UK and four since Eddie Hall of the UK won.

Tom and older brother Luke Stoltman (who also made it to the 2024 WSM Final, finishing in ninth place) will return to the United Kingdom with their heads held high and, for Tom, a target on his back. Canada’s powerhouse athlete, Hooper, will undoubtedly want the title back in 2025.
