BEAST! Eddie Hall Beats The Mountain To Win World’s Strongest Man Then Retires

By 05.29.17

Eddie “The Beast” Hall narrowly defeated The Mountain from “Game of Thrones” to win the 2017 World’s Strongest Man competition, becoming the first Briton in 24 years to take home the prestigious title. After his victory, the 29-year-old Hall announced that he was retiring from the World’s Strongest Man competition because of “health and longevity to spending more time with his family.”

He made the announcement with an Instagram post that featured a screencap from “The Godfather.”

I can’t say how I’ve done at wsm but I can say I’m now retired from wsm! I’ll still be on the British scene for many years to come and I thank all my fans and sponsors and my family and friends to the moon and back.
Massive thanks to my wife who I dearly love and ow a lot of my success to her.
Also my manager Mo Chaudry not only changed my life for the better but one of my best friends.
Big Love
The Beast
