The 1999 edition of "The World's Strongest Man" competition is currently scheduled to take place in Malta, from September 6th to the 20th. The present plan calls for five heats of six competitors each, with invitations to be based on performances last year and so far this year. Mark Philippi, Phil Pfister, Bryan Neese and Ken Brown were named as the likely U.S. representatives, but these details, as all the others, are subject to change. "The World's Strongest Man" competition is considered to be the crown jewel of the professional strongman circuit, whose competitors view it as their world championships.
