Twenty Stupid Questions with Paul Smith

'Paul who?' I hear you ask... Paul Smith is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated and undeservedly 'un-talked about' British Strongmen. At just 24 years old Paul has already achieved highly, winning England's Strongest Man, Junior UK's Strongest Man and most notably, The Ultimate Strongman Junior World Championships, beating the likes of Tom Stoltman and Iron Biby in the process.

Paul excels in any pain event requiring mental strength, such as the front hold, which he won at Britain's Strongest Man last year. Paul is a very talented and hard-working athlete and I love the fact that he seems to have so much fun competing.

Last year he went to World's Strongest Man as a reserve and ended up competing last minute with no time at all to prep. That experience teamed with his drive and determination and the titles he already has under his built will, I think, set him up for a great 2019 and beyond.
