Boris Haraldsson was born in 1980 in Reykjavík in Iceland. At the age of 21 he placed third in Iceland's Strongest Man and despite being absent from the podium from 2002 to 2004 he went on to become four-time champion from 2005 to 2008. These wins in one of the most prestigious national competitions in the strength athletics world qualified him for the World's Strongest Man on each occasion. However, in 2008 he was unable to attend and was out for most of that season due to a serious food poisoning incident and knee surgery. He has two children, a daughter, Elva (born 1998) and a son, Christian (born 2004).[4]
