South African athlete Brendali Theron has clinched the World’s Strongest Woman title, showcasing unparalleled strength and resilience on the global stage.


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (17 April 2024) – South Africa’s own Brendali Theron has been crowned the World’s Strongest Woman in a dazzling display of power and resilience.

On March 28th, 2024, amidst the glittering backdrop of Dubai, Theron clinched the prestigious title, adding another sparkling jewel to her already illustrious career. Hailing from the vibrant heart of South Africa, Theron’s passion for strength sports runs as deep as the African soil she calls home.

She proudly states, “South Africa is my home, and Africa runs deep in my veins. Being South African fuels my passion and determination in everything I do.”

At 33 years old, Theron’s journey to the pinnacle of strength sports is nothing short of inspirational. Her path to glory was paved with years of hard work, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries.

Reflecting on her journey, Theron shares, “Mediocrity was never an option. I’ve always believed in giving life everything I’ve got.”

Her victory in the African Strongest Woman championship in 2023 opened the door to the World Championships in Dubai. Under the watchful eyes of the Olympic committee, Theron faced a gruelling challenge that tested her limits like never before. From intense medleys demanding precision, power, and mental fortitude to enduring hours of competition, Theron showcased the true essence of strength sports.

Coach Robin Du Toit, the visionary founder of ArtisticFit, believes Theron’s triumph is just the beginning.

“Brendali is far from done,” remarks Du Toit. “Her focus on sustained performance sets her apart in a sport where longevity is key.”

Theron draws inspiration from various sources that have shaped her journey. Her brother’s resilience and dedication competing in the Paralympics, the vibrant spirit of South African culture, and her coach’s unwavering commitment have all played pivotal roles in her success.

Looking ahead, Theron is determined to reclaim the Africa’s Strongest Woman title in 2024 and is gearing up for the Static Monsters and OSG later this year. Beyond excelling in strength sports, she aims to promote a more athletic and feminine approach within the strongwoman community.

Her message to aspiring athletes resonates with encouragement and determination.

“Believe in yourself, stay dedicated to your goals, and never be afraid to push your limits,” Theron advises.

“Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth, and always remember that hard work, perseverance, and passion are the keys to success.”

As South Africa celebrates its new world champion, Theron’s victory is a source of inspiration for future generations of athletes.

Her message to South Africa is filled with gratitude and immense pride, reflecting the nation’s indomitable spirit, resilience, and determination.

“As a new world champion, I am honoured to represent our country on the global stage,” Theron expresses.

“Together, united as one nation, we embody strength beyond measure. Let us continue to support and uplift each other, celebrating our diversity as a source of strength. By nurturing talent, fostering inclusivity, and striving for excellence, we inspire the world and leave a legacy of greatness. South Africa, together, we are unstoppable! Let’s embrace our potential, forge ahead with determination, and illuminate the world with our talents and achievements.”

Her victory is not just a personal achievement but a celebration of South Africa’s growing presence on the international sports stage.

Hulle weet nie wat ons weet nie (that we are global superstars).

Congrats Brendali.
