TOM Stoltman has become the World’s Strongest Man for the third time in his career as he cruised to victory in the final at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The 29-year-old Invergordon powerhouse became only the seventh person to win the title three times, as he added to the World Strongest Man crowns he won in 2021 and 2022.

Stoltman finished on 53 points and was 5.5 points ahead of 2023 World Strongest Man Mitchell Hooper from Canada, who finished in second place on 47.5 with Evan Singleton of the United States in third place on 36.

Stoltman put in a consistent performance in all six events in the final, never finishing outside the top three to take the overall crown.

In the first event, he finished in third place in the Giant’s Medley, before finishing joint first in the Max Axle.

He also finished joint first in the Keg Toss before taking third place in Conan’s Wheel and was joint second in the terrain deadlift.

He was 5.5 points ahead of defending champion Hooper going into the Atlas Stones in the final round.

He then won his specialist event and was the only man to lift all five stones, doing so in 38.14 seconds.

His older brother Luke Stoltman, who was competing in his ninth World Strongest Man competition, finished in ninth place as he scored 19.5 points.

Luke was crowned Europe’s Strongest Man for the second time in his career in April.
