World’s Strongest Man 2013 – location confirmed


Update: Rumoured line-up and events, click here.

Colin Bryce has confirmed that this year’s World’s Strongest Man competition will be held in Sanya, China. It’s all kicking off a bit earlier this year in August but, as usual, we won’t get to see it on our television sets for much longer! The UK is scheduled for another Christmas screening while a screening in the USA is still to be confirmed.

The final selection for the competition will be at Giants Live on 3 August 2013 in Newcastle (England) and Poland. As far as we know, there aren’t any chinese competitors in the running for a qualifying spot but perhaps China will earn a few honorary spots for playing hosts?

What are your thoughts on WSM being in China? Happy for an exotic location or upset that it’s a long old haul to go and watch? Post your comments below.


  1. I think WSM needs all the popularity it can get these days. The exotic locales help out with drawing in new fans.
