World's Strongest Man Forging Ahead Toward the Finals

The weather hasn't made things easy for this year's World's Strongest Man contest, but things are forging ahead and the qualifiers are expected to be wrapped up today.

With a starting field of 12 competitors, only the top six will go on to the finals, and although anything could happen, the smart money is riding on Mariusz Pudzianowski, Vasyl Virastiuk, Zydrunas Savickas, Svend Karlsen, Magnus Samuelsson and Raimonds Bergmanis to make the cut.

Once the finals start, the slate is wiped clean and the competitors start afresh in their battle to win the title.
