Tom Stoltman Wins World’s Strongest Man 2021!
In this article we will discuss about the the World’s Strongest Man- Tom Stoltman!
The competition was legendary. Scotland’s Tom Stoltman is the world’s new strongest man. Here are some of his highlights, as well as an interview with the champion! The World’s Strongest Man competition in 2021 was the 44th installment of a famous strength show that has inspired people for years. The competition appears to become larger and better every year, but this one may have been the most spectacular in recent years. Here are some of the reasons why this year’s World’s Strongest Man will be remembered.
Tom Stoltman is a Scottish professional Strongman athlete. Back-to-back World’s Strongest Man (WSM) titles in 2021 and 2022. He also won Britain’s Strongest Man (BSM), was a two-time Scotland’s Strongest Man winner, and finished second at the 2021 Rogue Invitational.
Stoltman also owns the Atlas Stone world record, which he established on May 23, 2021, of 286 kilograms (630 pounds). This is his whole profile, biography, training regimen, diet plan, and other information.
Tom Stoltman was born in Invergordon, Scotland, on May 30, 1994, and was diagnosed with autism at the age of five. Stoltman had a tough upbringing and was tormented at school as a result of his illness. Things get so out of hand at one point that he considered suicide.
The 2021 WSM published a moving YouTube video on his channel in February 2022, in which he talked up about his experiences growing up with autism. “The professors didn’t get it [autism]. “A lot of people didn’t grasp it,” Stoltman said, citing problems with the Scottish education system. “The Albatross‘” most humiliating moment was when his physical education instructor informed him he would “never… be certain in life.”
He didn’t act out when meeting with physicians for a diagnosis, which made the doctors question if he even had autism. The mother of the 2021 WSM winner was eventually forced to film video proof to show to the physicians.
Luke Stoltman Comes To The Rescue
Fortunately, Tom’s elder brother Luke (2021 Europe’s Strongest Man winner and five-time Scotland’s Strongest Man champion) was a staunch (literally) supporter. Tom was introduced to strongman training by the elder Slotleman. However, for “The King of the Stones,” the experience was horrifying at first.
According to Tom, the clamor of people everywhere and the wall-lining mirrors gave him a sensation of paranoia. The situation of the 2021 WSM winner led him to assume that everyone was gazing at him and gossiping about him behind his back.
Recognizing the discrepancy between Tom’s physical size and his cerebral venerability, Luke referred him to Amy, a professional psychologist who assisted Tom in overcoming his mental difficulties. Tom never looked back after starting counseling with Amy.

According to Tom, a year and a half of therapy helped him feel so empowered that he had a gut feeling that he was going to win the 2021 WSM contest before it even started, and as they say, the rest is history.
Career and Competition
Stoltman, 27, is still in the early stages of his strongman career. He had competed in 28 strongman contests as of the publishing of this article, 19 international and nine national. He has won one international competition and two national competitions.
According to Strongman Archives, “The Albatross” has participated in four WSM events to date, reaching the finals in three of them. Stoltman placed sixth at the 2019 World Championships and second in the 2020 World Championships, trailing Ukrainian strongman Oleksii Novikov. Stoltman won three of the six events in the final of the 2020 WSM competition.
The golden trophy was raised by “The King of the Stones” at the 2021 WSM. Stoltman is the first Scot to win the World’s Strongest Man title, and the sixth overall.
Diet and Nutrition

Tom Stoltman Wins In The Final Event
This year’s champion is Scotland’s Tom Stoltman, who improved on his outstanding performance in 2020, when he won three of six finals events and finished second overall.
This year, the Stoltmans had two chances to win the championship. Luke, his older brother, has attended the event for the past five years. However, it is younger brother Tom, 27, who has emerged as this year’s competitive strongman king. Both men advanced to the finals, marking the second time in history that two brothers have been ranked among the top 10 strongest men in the globe.

Tom’s victory was significant for several reasons. He is not only the first guy from Scotland to hold the title, but he is also the first to be diagnosed with autism. He was diagnosed with autism at an early age, and he has stated that he saw it as a benefit.
For all of these reasons and more, there was no mistaking Stoltman’s joy when he lifted his final atlas stone on Sunday afternoon. He beat off previous champion Brian Shaw by 11 seconds and cruised to victory.
Despite the fact that Stoltman’s strongman career is still in its early stages, the 2021 World’s Strongest Man champion is emerging as one of the most promising strongmen athletes. Tom Stoltman aspires to be remembered as one of the best athletes of all time, as well as an inspiration to other autistic children who aspire to greatness.
Tom will defend his World’s Strongest Man title in the 2022 WSM (scheduled for May 29-29 in Sacramento, CA). The 2022 WSM competition features an impressive lineup, and “The King of the Stones” will seek to become the first strongman athlete to win back-to-back WSM titles since Brian Shaw in 2015 and 2016.
