Mark Philippi, who has led the return of Americans to the international strongman circuit, announced that he is returning to competition later this summer. Philippi, who was profiled in the June 1999 issue of MILO, was seriously injured at last year's "World's Strongest Man" competition, where he was the only American to qualify for the finals and had been expected to produce a very strong performance. Philippi will make his first appearance this year at the prestigious IFSA World Muscle Power Championships.
