don't get ESPN here.. but TSN always has the old ESPN re-runs on all the time. Fun to watch, although I'd rather watch one live where they don't edit the hell out of it.
magnus van magnuson is a beast! :)
does he even do it anymore?
last time he won was like 97 i think!
i watched the final tonight. some of them guys were really quite muscular.
the competitors of today have a lot less bodyfat then they did a few years back. A lot of them are ex-BBers i heard.
anyone else fancy squatting that truck? :)
look out for this dutch guy called Wout Zijlstra.
He won the dutch strongman comp hands down.
he did a farmers walk with 771 lbs for 40 meters....
the american guy won the farmer's walk comp.
Strongest man comps=ace!!
I watched about 10 hours of it :D
I watched off and on, all day! As for the competitors being more muscular, take a look at Bill Kazmaier and Jon Paul Sigmarrson (sp?), along with the rest of the guys from those years.
Those Strongman competitors are beasts.When you watch the ones from the 70s & 80s most of them are pretty fat but if you watch the ones from mid 90s to present most of them are solid as hell.Like Chris said just look at Bill Kazmaier he's 300+lbs & he looks pretty solid
