    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.

    • Miki Miyazaki
      Miki Miyazaki Year ago +2

      @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.

    • Aaron Barlow
      Aaron Barlow Year ago +1

      @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.

      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

      @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.

    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.

  • TheFlash3237

    Can he do it?
    Can he become World's Strongest Man?
    Yes he can!
    Amazing commentary!

    Legend in my book, he was intense

  • Shane Richard

    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.

    • dnegel
      dnegel 7 months ago +1

      i dont understand the baby oil one?

    • Shane Richard
      Shane Richard 7 months ago +6

      @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!

    • TheFlash3237
      TheFlash3237 Month ago +1

      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.

    RYŻEM PO OCZACH! 11 months ago +14

    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 🤝👍

    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.

    If only Mariusz had a better squat form and set-up…

    • Roy Batty
      Roy Batty Month ago +1

      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.

  • Scottie Steiner
    Scottie Steiner 24 days ago

    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.

      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.
