The 2023 NASM was Mitchell’s debut in the contest. In 2014, when NASM was last held, four-time WSM champion (2011, 2013, 2015-2016) Brian Shaw emerged victorious. It may be fitting that Mitchell spent his 30th birthday, which coincided with the last day of the contest, gaining such prestigious status.
Mitchell’s name and reputation have grown well beyond his status as a two-time defending SC champion. However, if he can rack up a hat-trick and with it win a new title of “The Strongest Man on Earth” Aside from some recent performances, his billing as a superstar will be indisputable.
