Born in Kapuskasing, in north-eastern Ontario, Canada’s Maxime Boudreault is a professional strongman from Thunder Bay, who has quickly risen from relative obscurity to reach the podium at the 2021 World’s Strongest Man.

The 6’ 4” (1.92m), 330lb (150kg) personal trainer and gym owner is renowned for his overhead pressing – he established a new Canadian record of 205kg/452lb in the World’s Strongest Man Grand Final in Sacramento, California in 2021

Maxime was able to win the Magnús Ver Magnússon Strongman Classic, held in Iceland in November 2021. Against a mainly northern European line-up, event wins in the log medley and deadlift, as well as runner-up spots in the medley, stone to shoulder and Húsafell Stone, were sufficient to see him triumph by 2.5 points over Iceland’s 2021 WSM finalist, Eythór Ingólfsson Melsted.
