Eddie began his sport career as a swimmer, and was an age-group national champion between ages 11-15 in England. However, as he grew older, and substantially larger, he gave up the pool for barbells. He began bodybuilding at age 16, and then, at age 20, he began training and competing in Strongman. Two years later he won England's Strongest Man (2010) and then, at only 23 years of age, in 2011, he won UK's Strongest Man as well. Hall is the youngest man to have held the prestigious UK title. In 2012 he was invited to participate in the TWI World’s Strongest Man contest for the first time and finished fourth in his heat. In 2014, when he was invited back, he did far better and finished sixth overall. He then went on to set the Strongman Deadlift World Record in 2016 and win the World's Strongest Man in 2017. Hall is known for his tremendous overhead pressing ability and his deadlifting strength.
