World’s Strongest Man has been held annually since 1977 and features feats of strength that most of the world can only imagine performing, such as pulling trucks and lifting logs, pushing the strongest to the very edge of their limits.

“We’re very excited to confirm Sacramento as the host of the SBD World’s Strongest Man competition,” said Rebecca Levin, Vice President of Media at IMG, producers of World’s Strongest Man. “We love bringing the competition to new places, and with the city’s rich history, world-class facilities, and beautiful waterfront, it’s the perfect fit.”

Competing strongmen will be announced at a later date.
