David Ostlund (born May 7, 1981) is an American professional strongman competitor. He grew up in Edina, Minnesota and attended Edina High School.[2] Ostlund was a member of the Edina track and field team and competed in the shot put and discus events. It was his weight training for track that initially sparked his interest in the sport of strongman.[3]

Ostlund began training with rocks and tires in addition to his weight training and in May 2001, he entered his first strongman contest in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. He was placed first and has been competing regularly ever since.[4]

Ostlund attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota where he continued his weight and strongman training. He graduated in 2003 and worked for about a year as a real estate appraiser. In 2004, he won his pro card at The Strongest in the West contest in Eagle, Idaho. In October 2005, he married Kate Strachota, whom he met at college.[5] On March 9, 2009 Dave and Kate welcomed William Thor Ostlund into their family. They currently live in Edina, MN with William and a vizsla puppy named Mutsy.
