“This is the final Giants Live strongman competition of the season and the last chance to secure a place at the World’s [World’s Strongest Man contest],” Giants Live founder Colin Bryce told IronMind® today.
Here’s the official lineup:
Stefan Solvi Petursson
“Two young new Poles will also be part of the lineup," Bryce said. "This should be a good contest - with the top three going to the World’s.”
The competition will be held at Malbork Castle in northern Poland, a 13th-century gem that “is the world’s largest medieval castle,” said Bryce. Svend “Viking” Karlsen has flown in from Norway to help Bryce present the TV commentary.
A source close to the process told IronMind® that “the World’s Strongest Man wild card selection will follow the contest. As ever, a senior panel of strongman experts will liaise with top IMG officials to help decide the lineup.”
And the stakes are higher than ever, as IronMind® heard, “This year’s World’s is expected to be the strongest lineup of strength athletes in history.”
Stay tuned for results.
