In a joint statement issued by FORTISSIMUS, this year's competition "will be organized and promoted in close partnership with the Strongman Champions League (SCL). In 2008, the SCL had 45 top strength athletes competing, representing more than 20 countries. The top five, based on the year 2008 results, will be invited to compete at Fortissimus."

And as a further indication of of how this partnership is developing, IronMind® was also told that, "Marcel Mostert, head of the Strongman Champions League, is expected to deliver a live statement from Europe at the press conference," referring to the media event FORTISSIMUS has scheduled for later this week.

It will insure a new trend in cooperation and promotion of strength athletes. That agreement will also give a tremendous exposure to the 2009 Fortissimus competitors via EUROSPORT broadcasting."
