2004 WSM: One American Competitor

Saying that in all likelihood, one American would be going to this year's World's Strongest Man contest, IFSA founder Douglas Edmunds, Ph.D. also said that the selection decision would be based on a combination of results from Riga and the US Nationals.

Explaining that it is both extremely important that "the right" American competitor is chosen and that the US Nationals are being held too late in the year to optimize their role in the WSM selection process, Edmunds was quick to underline the importance of the event, saying that representatives from the newly-formed IFSA Holdings would be present at the US Nationals to discuss how the sport is being restructured. Given the significance of the changes being discussed, Edmunds urged everyone who wants to be part of this process to be sure to be at the US Nationals.
