IFSA announced today that prospective competitors and events will be reviewed this summer, in preparation for the first World's Strongest Woman competition.
"We'll be bringing some women over to Callander [Scotland] as an important assessment," IFSA's Douglas Edmunds told IronMind. "IFSA used to do this for the men in the past, bring them up to Callander and go through the ropes with them there. This is the idea, to do the same thing with the women, so we're going to invite a certain bunch of women we think are capable of going forward, but then we'll see how they go in Callander, and we will learn and they will learn." This event is scheduled for July 28th and 29th Edmunds said.
