The 2023 season concluded for Giants Live with the recent World’s Strongest Nation competition, but they immediately turned their thoughts to the year ahead. So, on November 22nd, they took to Instagram in order to announce exciting news about their first competition in 2024. That will be the 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man and it will take place on January 27th, at the Utilita Arena, in Sheffield. Well, the stage is almost set, as the full lineup for the competition has been revealed.
The 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man contest will feature 14 of the nation’s greatest Strongman athletes. Moreover, it is looking extremely stacked on paper, as this competition has not featured as many competitors for over a decade.
2024 Britain’s Strongest Man Lineup
- Adam Bishop — Defending Champion
- Luke Stoltman
- Kane Francis
- Luke Richardson
- Mark Felix
- Patrick Haynes
- Graham Hicks
- Pa O’Dwyer
- Gavin Bilton
- Sean Gillen
- Paul Smith
- Cobor Curran
- Shane Flowers
- Tom Stoltman
The champion from last year’s Britain’s Strongest Man competition, Adam Bishop, is coming back once again in the hopes of defending it. It should be pointed out that Adam got injured at the 2023 Shaw Classic and has not competed since. So, it remains to be seen how he has recovered.
The biggest favorite for the 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man will once again be Tom Stoltman. ‘The Albatross’ will be coming in as the 2x National champion (2021, 2022). Tom did not take part in last year’s contest. So, the goal is clear, as the former World’s Strongest Man will look to reclaim his title.
Among Tom’s rivals will be his older brother, Luke Stoltman. Most known for his 2021 Europe’s Strongest Man title, Luke will look to rekindle his glory with a good performance at the 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man.
However, surprises may come from two men who are a bit less experienced than the Stoltman brothers, but have proven their worth nonetheless. The men in question are Luke Richardson and Kane Francis.
Luke was regarded as one of Strongman’s greatest prospects, but he faced some injuries that slowed his career down. However, he picked up where he left off, winning the first competition he took part in after years of injuries. On the other hand, Kane Francis has displayed some mind-blowing feats of strength throughout the 2023 Strongman Champions League season.
The 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man lineup features two more men who have won Britain’s Strongest Man competition in the past. One is Mark Felix, a legend of the sport who claimed titles in 2007 and 2008. The other is Graham Hicks, as he won the competition back in 2019. He has since battled some injuries, but has shown immense strength following his recovery.
The 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man features a mind-blowingly strong lineup, which is why it is so highly anticipated. The events for the competition still remain unknown, but there is no doubt that they will be revealed soon as well.
