Dominic Filiou

Bigger, better and stronger than Hugo Girard ever was!

Dominic Filiou was the biggest and most impressive guy I’ve ever seen, in person or on TV.  And believe, being a lifelong wrestling and strongman afficianado I’ve seen several huge men.  But no one is near Dominic Filiou.  As a strongman competitor myself I’ve seen Dominic in person and believe me, the man is freakin’ HUGE!!!  His 23-24 inches arms look alike 27-inch guns.  His shoulders looks like huge canonball.  Without noticeable belly!!  No matter what contest he’s in, be it the provincial or the World.  Dominic is always one and an half the size of the other competitors.  He was over 400 pounds and the average strongman was near 300 pounds.

  1. Non il n'est plus actif sur le circuit des Hommes Forts depuis quelques années. Au moment de prendre sa retraite des Hommes Forts, il avait perdu 80 livres – toujours aussi immense malgré tout – et était intéressé à faire du bodybuilding. Mais on en a jamais entendu parlé depuis.
