About World’s Strongest Man
Currently celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, World’s Strongest Man is the premier international competition in strength athletics. Owned and produced by IMG, the event is broadcast worldwide, airing on the CBS Sports Network in the US (in July) and Channel 5 in the UK (in December). Competitors qualify based on placing in the Top 3 at the four-to-eight “Giants Live” events each year. The Final sees 30 of the sport’s most dominant athletes compete for the title. From pulling trucks, planes, and giant mining carts to throwing logs and 160kg atlas stones, every event is designed to push the Strongmen to their absolute limits, challenging not only their physical strength, but their agility and mental toughness too, as well.
