Luke Stoltman Wins 2021 Europe’s Strongest Man

Here are the complete results from the 2021 Europe’s Strongest Man competition.

The 2021 Europe’s Strongest Man competition took place on Sept. 4 with some of the elite powerlifters in the world vying for the title. Leeds, England was the location of the event and it saw Luke Stoltman take home the championship.

Luke’s brother, Tom Stoltman, was one of the favorites to win the competition but was forced to bow out at the last minute. Stoltman tested positive for COVID-19 and was forced to stay in Scotland. The title was able to stay in the family with Luke emerging as the victor.

Stoltman is now qualified for the 2022 World’s Strongest Man competition. Oleksii Novikov, who won the 2020 WSM, finished second while Graham Hicks placed third. Novikov was already qualified for the 2022 WSM and Stoltman and Hicks earned theirs by finishing in the top three of the event.

The Europe’s Strongest Man consisted of five events — max log lift, shield carry, axle deadlift, car walk, and castle stones. Below are the full results from the competition.
