    Eddie Hall wins the 2017 world's strongest man contest. Halfthor Bjornsson 2nd, Brian Shaw 3rd.

    bunch of controversy with this one...Thor actually took down a post claiming he was robbed...they deducted a rep from the Viking Press from him, he claims if it counted he would have taken points, or at the very least tied after stones...Hall went into the Viking press knowing Thor only got 14 credited reps, so he stopped at 15...then he took his time on stones, literally stopping and acknowledging the victory before loading the 5th stone...watching Hall in the Viking press, even if Thor would have gotten the 15th rep, it's hard to argue Hall couldn't have gotten a 16th with the way they were moving...either way, not a good look for Thor. Shaw claimed injury...not a good look either. Almost as if both are acting like sore losers.

    great performance from Eddie....can't believe he said he's retiring from World's Strongest Man...

    Better to retire a winner, then come back year after year to finish off the podium. He's just holding up his promise to quit after a win. Plus he said he'll still compete in British events and Giants , just not WSM
