Canadian strongman Mitchell Hooper was named the winner of World’s Strongest Man 2023 in Myrtle Beach, Carolina - here are the final results and leaderboard of the heaviest sporting competition on Earth.

The World’s Strongest Man2023 competition entered its final day at Myrtle Beach in Southern Carolina as Scottish strongman Tom Stolten, known to many as The Albatross, looked to defend his two year streak as champion. But it was Canadian brute Mitchell Hooper who won this year's competition, which has now met a crescendo.

The global spectacle saw the largest men lift heavier weights than you could ever fathom across a five day period, starting from Wednesday 19 April and coming to a close on Sunday 23 April. It kicked off with two days of qualifying rounds followed by a two-day final, ending with the crowning of this year’s World’s Strongest Man.
