WSM, 1977 - PRESENT
The World’s Strongest Man competition is about more than just force: it is about stamina, skill, tactics, training and strategy. Every event below is designed to push the Strongmen to their absolute limits, challenging not only their physical strength, but their agility and mental toughness too. It doesn't get any bigger than this.
The World's Strongest Man is an international strongman competition founded in 1977. Competitors qualify based on placing in the top three at the four to eight Giants Live events each year. These athletes bring nothing but their best in their quest for the title as the next World’s Strongest Man.
With 25 athletes going head to head testing strength by squatting 317kg (700lbs) or shattering a deadlift world record with a lift of 537.5kg (1185lbs). The weights lifted by today’s strongmen are dizzying. The fact so many of the current strongman world records have been sent in the last year or two shows how quickly the level is rising.
