Dave Ostlund has been a World’s Strongest Man competitor since 2005, and finishing in third place in 2008 and 7th in 2014. As with so many Strongmen, Dave’s fascination with strength training came from watching competitions on TV and, once he tried training for himself, became immediately hooked.
Dave cites Jouko Ahola as his most admired Strong Man, because he succeeded without having those X-Men-like genetics, and his success is down to hard work, discipline and training.
