Svend Karlsen at the Arnold:

2001 World's Strongest Man winner Svend Karlsen is coming into the Arnold in top form, and while Svend said "it's all secrets now" as far as the details go, rest assured that the Norwegian strongman star is at peak strength levels.

Svend said that he has changed his training specifically to prepare for this contest, known for its emphasis on heavy events as much as for its hefty prize list. Currently weighing about 150 kg, Svend said that his preparation has been going extremely well and summed things up by simply saying, "I hope to do my best, and if I do, it will be very hard to beat me."
