7. Jouko Ahola
This Finnish athlete joins the elite group of twice winners of World’s Strongest Man. The back-to-back wins of Ahola put him in a much less prestigious class of the champions.

Subsequent to venturing down from rivalries for strongmen, Ahola has sought after an acting profession through jobs on TV and film and most as of late, on the History Channel show “Vikings.”

The most famous British strength athlete to ever compete in the contest, Capes took home two championships in the mid-1980s and became the only third individual to win many wins. He also ended his professional career by securing six podiums at the World’s Strongest Men event.

The Icelandic competitor was a piece of his individual nation man Jon Pall Sigmarsson as the second-time four-time champion from the little Scandinavian country. He is higher on this list because of the remarkable nature of his wins as well as the high standard of competition in his time.
In the first six visits to the event, Magnusson never finished below 2 2nd spot, setting up him as one of the top competitor’s rivals throughout the entire existence of rivalry for strongman. Magnusson was a retired athlete in 1997 following having failed to make it to the finals, only by one point, during his seventh visit to the WSM competition.
