Strongman career

Louis-Phillipe Jean began competing in strongman at the age of 17 and won the Quebec Cup at the age of 22, the youngest man to ever win the title. He came third in his first appearance at Canada's Strongest Man in 2006. Louis soon began competing on the international circuit and was invited to the Strongman Super Series in 2007.

In 2008, Jean became Canada's Strongest Man, the youngest man to ever win the title, and also finished in fourth place at Fortissimus in Quebec. Jean won the Overhead Power Medley event at the Fortissimus contest.

Jean was named "Canada's Strongman of the Year" by Fortissimus World Strength in 2008 after winning Canada's Strongest Man, his high placing at Fortissimus, and becoming the youngest Canadian to ever qualify for World's Strongest Man.

Jean was invited to the 2008 World's Strongest Man contest, although he failed to make the finals. In 2009, Jean did make the final of the 2009 World's Strongest Man in Valletta, Malta, finishing in 10th place.

Jean broke the Canadian log lift world record on April 30, 2011, by lifting 195.5 kilograms (431 lb). This record stood until 2017; the previous record was held by Hugo Girard at 186 kilograms (410 lb) which was set at the Strongman Super Series Canada Grand Prix in 2003.

Personal life

Jean married Kim Des Becquets on August 20, 2011. The wedding took place at the Saint-Charles-Borromée church in Quebec City. Fellow strongman competitor, training partner and close friend Derek Poundstone was a groomsman at the wedding.

Jean reportedly trained so hard with Poundstone during the days prior to the wedding in preparation for the 2011 World's Strongest Man contest, that he had difficulty walking down the aisle for the ceremony.
