Eddie Hall was on hand to present trophies to the winners in 2017.

Hot on the success of the Strongman competition at the Dubai Muscle Show in 2016, it came back bigger and stronger in 2017.

In the Muscle Show’s new venue of Dubai World Trade Centre, the strongman arena looked nothing short of spectacular.

Emirates Strength were once again in charge and pulled out all the stops to advance the quality of the event, the size of the field, and the strength community as a whole.

The first thing to notice was the introduction of three categories – male under 90kg and open weights, and also a women’s category.

The events were also a real spectacle, kicking off with the log press, then moving on to the impressive car deadlift, farmers walk, stone carry, and finally the iconic Atlas stones.

It was a brilliant two days of competition with overseas competitors adding to the strong field of local athletes.

The women’s event was won by Grace Kassab, while it was the Iranian men who dominated on day two.

Mohammad Ezatpour won the open weight, with Majid Esafahani taking the under-90kg crown.

To cap it all off, World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall was the man handing out the prizes.
