IFSA Holdings: 2005 Schedule

With strongman evolving rapidly in the last few years, substantial organizational changes are underway in the sport, and IFSA Holdings has just released a statement regarding its 2005 calendar.

"In an effort to launch an exciting new era in the Strongman sport globally, IFSA Strongman is currently finalising a vastly improved events calendar for the 2005 season. The 2005 top events will include IFSA World Strongman, IFSA World Strongman Nation and IFSA World Strongman Under 105kg; a full pyramid of national, sub-continental and continental championships leading to these title events; as well as a number of established events such as Arnold's Classic, The World's Strongest Man.

To implement this calendar, IFSA Strongman is in currently in negotiations with a number of parties, including ExpoCité from Quebec for staging the 2005 IFSA World Strongman as was reported in IronMind® earlier. IFSA Strongman recognizes the historical contribution of Quebec to strength sports, and the vast experience of ExpoCitè for organising similar events, but to date no final agreement has been reached, and any details regarding the agreement are still speculative.

Throughout the next three months IFSA Strongman will communicate news regarding the 2005 calendar as well as other exciting developments of the sport that we believe would put the Strongman Sport in the place that has long deserved but until now has not had the resources to deliver.

IFSA Strongman is the world governing body, elite athlete manager and rights holder of the Strongman sport worldwide."
