My Mother Told Me to Either Swim or Sink – Eddie Hall | London Real


Eddie Hall is the athlete, strongman, and actor better known as “The Beast”.

In 2016 he set the deadlift world record at 500kg – over 1100 pounds – which he said was one of the most dangerous things he’s ever done.

In 2017 he won the World’s Strongest Man competition at the sixth attempt, accomplishing a lifelong dream.

Today he spends his time recording television projects and YouTube shows, promoting strongman as a sport and mental health awareness. He is also filming a documentary with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
