MET-Rx World’s Strongest Man 2010: Competitor List, Qualifying Groups and Events

A few days ago, a source close to the decision-making process told IronMind® that it was hoped the competitors for the 2010 MET-Rx World’s Strongest Man (WSM) contest would be announced this week.

Following the announcement of the competitors, the assumption is that the qualifying groups and the events will be announced in fairly short order.

So, with each passing day, some might argue, the probability of the official announcement of the list of competitors increases.  Nonetheless, what is certain is that this could well prove to be the most competitive of all WSM contests, as the 2010 MET-RX World’s Strongest Man contest will tap into the largest, most talented pool of strongman competitors ever to walk the face of the earth.

Using a simple momentum projection, IronMind® is guessing that the structure could well be groups of six in the qualifiers, with the top two competitors going forward to the finals.  Speculation about a heavy log has more than made the rounds as has a general feeling that the WSM event designers have been working overtime planning the 2010 MET-Rx World’s Strongest Man contest.

The leader of the pack is about to flex its muscles.
