World's Strongest Man Selection Update: Steve Kirit is Looking Good

With the 2004 World's Strongest Man (WSM) competition drawing nearer, all eyes are on the athletes who will be invited to this year's contest, and things are looking good for Steve Kirit to gain the one slot allocated to an American competitor.

Currently, the final list of WSM competitors is being worked on, getting it ready to present for the final decisions, and while the top eight or nine slots are said to be without question, the last remaining three or four are subject to more review and discussion. Sources involved in these negotiations said today that there is no compelling reason to consider anyone but Steve Kirit for the American slot, since he made the finals in Riga and has won the last two US National Championships.
