Originally scheduled for October, the contest date was moved since “most of the participating athletes will compete for the World Strongest Man in September [and this] will give enough time for everybody to recover and be fit to fight for a place in the World Strongman Super Series Final in Gothenburg, Sweden, on the 5th of December,” Karlsson explained.
And speaking of Sweden, “Last Saturday, Sweden got a new strongman champion as 24 year-old Johannes Årsjö beat the reigning champion, Anders Johansson, as he won four out of six disciplines,” Karlsson reported.
“Johannes said he is in good shape and the coming months will be really challenging. He will compete with the world elite in World’s Strongest Man in September, the World Strongman Super Series in Venice Beach on the 14th of November and the World Strongman Super Series Final in Gothenburg on the 5th of December,” Karlsson said.
