Competitors to Watch

Tom Stoltman

Stoltman is the reigning champion at the Britain’s Strongest Man competition and will look to make it two in a row. He will certainly be the favorite heading into the event. Stoltman had a monster 2021. He took home the prize at this event along with the World’s Strongest Man competition. Stoltman will compete at the 2022 Arnold Strongman Classic after his appearance in England.

Adam Bishop

Bishop has been a contender in this competition for years now. He won the show back in 2020, where he defeated the Stoltman brothers. Last year, Bishop finished as the runner-up. Bishop’s highest finish in the World’ Strongest Man competition was sixth back in 2020. Bishop performs well at this event and has a chance to make it two titles in three years.

Graham Hicks

Hicks is the third and final former champion making his return. Hicks finished with the prize during the 2019 contest but was forced to miss in 2020 due to an injury. He returned to the stage in 2021 and finished third, behind Stoltman and Bishop. Hicks has been dealing with some nagging injuries this year and hopes to enter 2022 with a clean bill of health. This will be key as he prepares for this event over the next two months.

Luke Stoltman

Luke Stoltman, the elder of the Stoltman brothers, will join his brother as the Arnold Strongman Classic in February. First, he will look to bring home another title after successful 2021. Stoltman won the 2021 Europe’s Strongest Man competition along with the Giants Live World Tour Finals. He also set a new British world record in the Log Press for max. Stoltman finished third during the 2020 Britain’s Strongest Man competition.
