Motion text

That this House offers its profound congratulations to Scotland’s Tom Stoltman on his incredible achievement of winning the 2021 World’s Strongest Man competition in Sacramento, California last month; notes that 27 year-old Tom finished three points clear of the hugely experienced Brian Shaw, a four-time champion considered by many to be one of the greatest strength athletes of all time; further notes that Tom has made history in becoming the very first Scot to be crowned World’s Strongest Man, and only the fourth British citizen to achieve this feat since the great Geoff Capes in the 1980s; acknowledges that Tom and his older brother Luke, who finished seventh in this year’s final, are wonderful ambassadors for British sport; and recognises that Tom, who has spoken openly about his struggles with his Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a true role model and someone from whom we can all draw huge inspiration.
