"Both the mayor of Charleston and the governor of West Virginia, who were major sponsors of America's Strongest Man, have decided to postpone that contest until 2009 in order to concentrate on an even larger, more prestigious contest this fall," Pfister told IronMind®. "There simply were not the resources to do both contests this year."
All America's Strongest Man competitors have been notified, Pfister said, and their entry fees are being returned.
