World's Strongest Man - Wikipedia

The World's Strongest Man is a strongman competition. Organized by TWI, an IMG Media company, it is broadcast around the end of December each year.[2] Competitors qualify based on placing in the top three at the four to eight Giants Live events each year.[3] The current event sponsor is the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, California;[4] other past sponsors include DAF Trucks, Tonka, MET-Rx, and PartyPoker.com. The event has a number of rival and parallel competitions with which it is sometimes confused, including the Strongman Super Series, the now defunct IFSA Strongman World Championships (run from 2005-2007 after the International Federation of Strength Athletes parted company with WSM in 2004) and Strongman Champions League.
