World’s Strongest Man: Three New Events Under Review

Spinning centrifuges, giant water faucets and a medieval-looking catapult—not standard gym equipment, but the very things that might see the light of day in the 2011 World’s Strongest Man (WSM) contest.

The World’s Strongest Man organizers have come up with concepts for three new events and “are giving [WSM] fans a chance to interact and comment” on them.  “We’re not saying that the events will definitely be used,” a source close to the WSM event design team told IronMind, but the possibility is there, so take a look, vote and share your thoughts.
