Former Bishop's Stortford High School student and Harlequins RFC strength and conditioning coach Adam Bishop in World's Strongest Man final on Channel 5 on New Year's Day




An ex-Bishop's Stortford High School student and former Sawbridgeworth resident is competing to be crowned World's Strongest Man 2020 - and you can cheer him on from your sofa on New Year's Day (Friday).

Adam Bishop and his nine rivals will take on six gruelling tests of strength from 7.30pm on Channel 5 as they bid to be named the planet's top muscleman.

Bishop, who is Britain's Strongest Man and has been a runner-up in Europe's Strongest Man, will be looking to improve on his 2019 performance when he came ninth in the grand final.

The 31-year-old, who is a strength and conditioning coach at Harlequins RFC, will be up against fellow UK athletes Tom Stoltman, Luke Richardson and Graham Hicks, the USA's Jerry Pritchett, Brian Shaw and Kevin Faires, Ukraine's Oleksii Novikov, Canada's Jean-Francois Caron and Latvia's Aivars Ć maukstelis.

Taking place on Anna Maria Island in Bradenton, Florida, the rounds include the giant's medley, max deadlift, keg toss, Hercules hold, log ladder and the iconic Atlas stones to decide who is the globe's strongest man.
