Nick Best

Nick hails from Las Vegas, Nevada, and holds the International Federation of Strength Athletes world record for the 125 kg, 75m Farmer’s Walk, with a time of 47.3 seconds. He has been competing as a Strongman for over ten years. Incredible, especially when you consider that he started competing at the age of 36 – which is usually about the time pro-Strongmen begin to retire!

His interest in sports began at school where he played football and baseball. To help him to increase his strength and size, he began lifting weights. This weight training, which began at the age of 13, would set him on the road to strength training, and finally, professional competition.
A force to be reckoned with in the world of the Strongmen, Nick also won the All-American Strongman Challenge in 2010, his career best win to date, and one which qualified him for the 2010 Arnold Strongman Classic.

Nick first competed in the World’s Strongest Man in 2010, and finished in 6th place. A real achievement for a first time entrant.
Nick went on to finish second at the 2011 All-American Strongman Challenge which earned him an invite to the 2011 Arnold Strongman Classic, where he took 7th place.

He then placed second at the Giants Live event in Melbourne, Australia in 2012 – one place behind Mike Jenkins.

Nick finished second in the 2013 Giants Live Australia Grand Prix in Melbourne, Australia behind winner Derek Poundstone.
