Created in 1977, The World's Strongest Man™ has become the premier event in strength athletics. For over 30 years, the strongest men on the planet have come together in a series of unique and amazing tests of strength to determine The World's Strongest Man. The competition has travelled to stunning and varied locations such as Zambia, Iceland, Mauritius, Malaysia, Morocco, China and the USA.
For over three decades The World's Strongest Man has tested the limits of human strength, power, and endurance. The best strongmen on the planet and the most demanding challenges including Fingal's Fingers, Truck Pull, Dead Lift, Giant Farmers Walk, Plane Pull and the Atlas Stones have made the event a highlight in the TV calendar and the show a family favourite with a worldwide audience of over 220 million people.

One of the greatest of all time, whether you like it or not.
True. He is an atg but as many know when you look at the weights, events etc and the split between wsm and the other one (heavier and harder tbh) the top guys split and mariusz stayed at wsm. Hes probably 4 or 5 atg TBH. Big z and shaw are def ahead of him.
@Miki Miyazaki Thor is an ATG too and in his prime stronger than all.
@Aaron Barlow while he was a freak even amongst his peers, i think big Z probably had the stronger core and was possibly stronger in other areas as well. I also feel the same about Brian shaw.
@Miki Miyazaki Although Thor is the strongest deadlifter which is a big core event, plus the strongest keg tosser which is explosive core, back and shoulders.
Big Z had a massively strong press. Thor beat Shaw head to head most of the time.
@Aaron Barlow later on he beat shaw but earlier events shaw came out on top
when it comes to carrying heavy stuff for distance, or rather running with it, nobody has ever done it better than Pudzian
Good at figuring out events too, the modern strongman that reminds me most of him is either Oleksii Novikov or Mateusz Kieliszkowski.
The grit and determination of this man is just mind blowing his ability to grind is unbelievable
He seems like a guy with a really strong heart and lungs. Vascularity and pure blood pumping power is very important and perhaps overlooked
Marius was a mobile beast, no strongman even today moves like him. And to think this was after a year in the pokey after going vigilante on a whole mob
vigilante? story time
@dnegel yeah he got arrested after beating up some mob boss. And had to have prison time so pudz had to miss 2001 wsm because pudz was in prison.
What a Humble Gaint. Had the privilege of meeting, working and introducing Marius back in 2000 WSM at the Stunning Sun City Resort, South Africa
Mariusz will always have a special place in my heart.
I just remember there being an interview after an event when they asked him about how he was able to perform so well in some event and in his little english that he knows he said "When I lift, I win." This guy is a legend. If anyone has the link to it, I'd love to see it.
Can he do it?
Can he become World's Strongest Man?
Yes he can!
Legend in my book, he was intense
Mariusz was a true professional. Not just an athletic freak, but knew how to get the most out of every event. He wears raised shoes to make himself taller in the atlas stones, has 2 layers of cushion on his arms for the shield carry so it is more comfortable, used to baby oil his thighs to jack up the deadlift bar, etc etc.
i dont understand the baby oil one?
@dnegel if you watch some deadlift events Mariusz did, especially car deadlifts, he would pull the bar to just over his knee, then use his leverage to slide the bar up his legs (which was easier with smooth baby oil thighs) and lockout. It's more technical but can help grind out some extra reps - something Mariusz was one of the best at!
Yup, experience. Mariusz knew how to master practically every event. Event in those events where he wasn't the favorite, he would still be 3rd or 4th out of 10. A true machine.
How does the Mariusz used to say? "POLSKA GÓRĄ"! He fought not just for himself, but for Poles and country! Always proud of Motherland!
Best wishes for you Mariusz and all the warriors 🤝👍
Guy was just an animal 💪. I hope we get to see him knock Thor out at some point 😄
cam I hope it happens so Thor can stop pretending to be a combat athlete. 😄😏
Marius was ans still amazing😳his biggest power is mind ,amazing mind power.
El mejor de todos los tiempos
Just noticed Marius has platforms strapped to his shoes for the stones . Shocked that this was aloud even back in the naughties . Hell of a competitor !!
It puts him at a deficit to lift them up though... those blocks looked very high so in the end it's probably a net positive for him.
There is a reason he has most WSM titles
Don't ever let anyone say you were never the best because you're the best of all time and always will be you're better than Muhammad Ali I'm telling you you are the strongest polish man in the world and always will be amen
just noticed Pudzianowsk is wearing platform shoes for the Atlas stones ,@ 10:48
Proud to be growing Up when pudzian was winning
Mariusz Pudianuzkowski is my Man💪
Remember this like it was yesterday. Almost wish it was
I thought bill casmeyer was my favorite until I seen Mario's poojanowski the strongest man ever and should probably be forever in the world
If only Mariusz had a better squat form and set-up…
His squat became one of his best events. He got a bicep injury and spent several months only training legs. When he showed up in 2003, his legs were INSANE and he won all squat events.
Never the strongest. His stamina and endurance got him wins. Never placed better than 4th at the Arnold Classic (more strength based) even when he won at WSM.
The WSM contests of the last four or five years have had some really boring events in them. I wish we had tyre flips and anchor pulls again.
Beast of man all round package
He sounds just like Mateusz
i miss this commentator
He really used to do a great job
When they say he is not big he is 6ft and 130kg 6ft is above average height by some way.
not for strongmen
Yeh, ive noticed the same. Im 5'10. Sometimes i feel like a dwarf knowing these guys are out there
There's big for an ordinary man and then there's big for a strongman competitor.
Damn only 25 years old
Not looking a day over 37 here 😂
That’s what steroids do to you.
Pudz retired at 30 but looking 40 and won 5 in an 8 year period. Really 7 year period, his final year when he took second he was injured and barely trained.
11:14 platforms 🕺
All these videos are not from he's first win
"... very good training, feed on drug, no problem "
every single one of them
They were all juiced to the gills, Maruisz was just the only one who kept himself in shape which is why people think he was the only one on steroids.
