The 2024 Europe’s Strongest Man competition is just over two months away and there is now an official roster and list of events. The 2024 Europe’s Strongest Man competition is scheduled to take place on April 13th in Leeds, England.

Last week, the Giants Live Strongman’s official Instagram account shared the list of competitors along with the five events that will determine the next champion.

2024 Europe’s Strongest Man Lineup

The lineup for the 2024 Europe’s Strongest Man features 12 of the best competitors from around the world. This includes reigning champion Pavlo Kordiyaka. Aivars Smaukstelis will also return after a third-place finish in England last year.

Oleksii Novikov headlines the event as one of the best Strongmen on the planet. The 2020 World’s Strongest Man champion has finished in the top three in three of the last four competitions. He has great success at this competition as well, finishing as the runner-up in 2021 and 2023 with a victory sandwiched between.

Gavin Bilton will return quickly to competition after finishing second to Tom Stoltman during the 2024 Britain’s Strongest Man. Tom’s brother, Luke Stoltman, will also be in contention in April. He won this title in 2021 and will be one of the favorites again.

All together, the group of 12 men make up a loaded roster that is sure to make some noise in Leeds.

2024 Europe’s Strongest Man Event List

  • Nicol Stones
  • Car Walk
  • Deadlift Ladder
  • Viking Press
  • Castle Stones

The competition will feature some of the classic Strongman events. It begins with Nicol Stones and continues with the car walk, where competitors will strap a car on their shoulders and walk for distance.

The deadlift ladder will return to the event. This is where competitors will be asked to deadlift weights that continue to go up over the course of their turn. The Viking Press shows shoulder strength as competitors are asked to press logs for reps. Finally, Castle Stones rounds out the competition. Strongman is known for stone events because of their difficulty to lift due to awkward size and immense weight.

The 2024 Europe’s Strongest Man competition has a chance to be one of the most exciting on deck for this calendar year.
