Who won the 2024 Scotland’s Strongest Man competition?

The 2024 Scotland’s Strongest Man results are in. Taking place on July 7th in Grangemouth, United Kingdom, the competition saw 16 competitors go head to head for the top honors. The show was filled with its fair share of drama as three-time Scotland’s Strongest Man winner Louis Jack went head-to-head with perennial runner-up Chris Beetham. But unlike prior years the results would be a bit different than anticipated.

There appears to be a new king of Scotland in the strongman world. After taking the Scotland’s Strongest Man title at the 2023 show, Louis Jack was no doubt the favorite to win the 2024 show. He once again showcased just how formidable he is at this year’s show. There was just one problem. Jack went head to head with Chris Beetham, something he has done on numerous occasions in the past. This time was different however as Beetham determined to stand atop the podium and edged out Jack; by just one point.
