In the wake of last week's announcement that the Beauty & the Beast 2000 strongman competition will be an open event, IFSA president Douglas Edmunds issued a statement regarding athlete eligibility. Reiterating IFSA plans to coordinate "an official National championship" in the U.S., Edmunds explained that this contest would be the basis for athletes progressing to such top competitions as World's Strongest Man, and the World Team Championships. Edmunds warned that, "Athletes competing in unofficial international competitions will put their selection for future events at risk."
