World's Strongest Man Finals: About To Begin

Kuala Lumpur – The first day of the 2002 World's Strongest Man contest begins tomorrow morning with the Flip and Drag.

The Farmer's Walk will also be held tomorrow, and some have predicted that it will be a pivotal event as far as determining the final placings. Weather is hot and humid, giving the competitors an added burden, but everyone is in good spirits.

The field for this year's event is considered very strong, and while opinions vary, Karlsen, Girard and Pudzianowski are popular picks as pre-contest favorites.
