Magnus Ver, one of the highest-profile names in strongman, is coming off a win this past weekend, and he said that his knees are holding up, so he will be entering the Iceland's Strongest Viking contest feeling pretty strong.
Magnus Ver said that besides himself, the starting field will include Benedikt Magnusson, George Ogmundsson, Magnus Magnusson, Gretar Gudmundsson, Jon Valgeir Williams, Stefan Solfi Petursson, Arnar Mar Jonsson and Gumundur Otri.
The top two finishers, Magnus Ver said, will qualify for the IFSA Nordic Championships, and the winner will qualify for the IFSA European Championships.
