SBD World's Strongest Man

The battle for the title of World’s Strongest Man (WSM) begins Tuesday, May 24 at the Capitol Mall in downtown Sacramento, Calif., and culminates on Sunday, May 29 when a champion will be crowned. In partnership with Visit Sacramento, the 45th edition of the World’s Strongest Man competition is free and open to the public, featuring a new Fan Festival area with food trucks, giveaways, as well as a general admission viewing area to catch all the action live. 


Thirty of the world’s top strongmen, including 2021 WSM reigning champion Tom Stoltman (GBR) and four-time World’s Strongest Man champion Brian Shaw (USA) will be pushed to their physical and mental limits with an epic series of events, including the first-ever Deadlift Ladder consisting of a series of incrementally heavier bars ranging between 650 and 750 pounds and a massive Bus Pull, where athletes will pull a brand new Sacramento Regional Transit Bus weighing approximately 40,000 pounds in a race against time. 

Qualifying days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (May 24-May 26) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT  and Finals will take place Saturday and Sunday (May 28-29) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT..
