World’s Strongest Man 2009: More on the Competitors

In addition to those strongmen who have already qualified for the 2009 World’s Strongest Man contest, IronMind® is hearing that “the top five from Strongman Champions League have been taken into account,” which we understand to mean that they might already have been earmarked for this A-list strongman event.

IronMind® has heard the rumor that Zydrunas Savickas has been invited, but we have not been able to confirm that.  We have also heard that Ervin Katona might be making his debut at this year’s World’s Strongest Man contest, but that would be contingent upon his being “fit in time.”

Someone close to the decision-makers told IronMind®, “World’s Strongest Man has never stopped the world’s best strongmen from going to WSM and now that the world of strongman is getting much closer, it appears that we will be able to have every top athlete in the world there [this year].”

Always exciting and fun, World’s Strongest Man 2009 promises to be the best one yet.
