“The MHP Strongman Champions League is on its way to China, with 32 athletes from 31 nations all over the world for the biggest professional field a strongman show ever had in history:   A new episode of strongman will be a fact after 11 July,” Marcel Mostert told IronMind today.

“We are going to make there a completely new strongman show with a totally different format than have ever been used before: There will be team events, with 2 to 6 athletes per team, individual events, and every day elimination rounds.
“The competition lasts six days in total, from 4  until 11 July , with over 19 events.  After each day, 2-4 athletes will be eliminated.

“Under these 19 events will be: building a huge pyramid of 50 washing machines, pulling airplanes of 40,000 kg , jar lifting, building bridges, keg throwing in the water, etc. . . . crazy events, all based on strongman rules and its format, but completed with a way different sauce.  

“On top of that we will have 50 dancers, fireworks, speedboats and watergliders for the opening and closing ceremony.

“It took us really much preparation to get this all done and we are satisfied so far because we are proud that SCL will write history again.  It’s going to be huge!,” Mostert said.
