Testing for the World’s Strongest Man – Iron Game History – June 2010

The final event of the 1990 World’s Strongest Man contest-held in Joensuu, Finland-pitted Iceland’s Jón Páll Sigmarsson against American O.D. Wilson. Sigmarsson, winner of three prior World’s Strongest Man contests (hereafter, WSM), was behind by five and one-half points to Wilson (46 to 40.5), just after finishing second to Wilson in the Anvil Lift event. Still Sigmarsson confidently boasted that he would do well enough in the final event, the Brick Canying Race, to beat Wilson in the contest.
