Mark FelixMark Felix is one of the oldest and strongest strongmen on earth. He was born in 1966, but did not start training with weights until 1993 when he found his passion. By 1996, he was competing in natural bodybuilding competitions representing Grenada, West Indies. By 1997, he had moved to the United Kingdom and competed in natural bodybuilding competitions there. Starting a family took precedence to his career at the time, but he continued to train and work out.

In 2002, he filled in at a strongman competition for a friend. He came in 3rd and won 3 of the events. With his first foray into the strongman competition, he became hooked. He made his first appearance at World’s Strongest Man in 2004 in the Bahamas and placed 7th. In 2006, he returned to World’s Strongest Man and placed 4th.
