Eleiko WSMSS at Madison Square Garden: Stars, Tickets

It's "the world's most famous arena," so wouldn't you expect strongmen of the same stature when the Eleiko WSM Super Series comes to Madison Square Garden on June 21?

How's this for big names for the center-stage arena? Getting the ball rolling, IronMind® has been told, officially, that Magnus Samuelsson and Hugo Girard will be competing. Samuelsson is a World's Strongest Man winner who is also known as having the world's strongest arms, which include hands that have been certified on the No. 3 and No. 4 Captains of Crush® Grippers; and Girard is a former world record-holder on the Apollon's Axle, as well as as a past Super Series champion and Canada's Strongest Man winner.

Three more World's Strongest Man winners will also be on hand, as Jouko Ahola, Svend Karlsen, and Philip Pfister will be working in various capacities, and while we have yet to confirm it, there is a rumor that the vivacious Lene Karlsen might be available to autograph copies of MILO for her fans.

Ulf Bengtsson, founder and president of World Class Enterprises, which organizes the World's Strongest Man Super Series, told IronMind®, "This is nothing but an amazing opportunity for the sport of strongman. [This is] an extraordinary step toward achieving high-end exposure of the athletes and the Super Series tour. Personally, I can't wait to take my seat and see the action take place."

And so that you can plan to be there too, IronMind® has just received the ticket information:

Tickets will go on sale next Wednesday, but Madison Square Garden and WSMSS are launching a pre-sale on Monday at noon. All fans are welcome to visit Ticketmaster or the Madison Square Garden site and use the promo code HP Strong.
