The Epic Rivalry Continues
Last year, Brian Shaw earned his third title at The Commerce World’s Strongest Man 2015. That win tied him with his legendary compatriot Bill Kazmaier for the most wins by an American since the competition first began in 1977. Today, he has a newborn son who he’d like to bring a new trophy home to, but that would require a week’s worth of peak performance in Botswana, Africa, starting August 13th.
Usually, it’s Zydrunas Savickas standing in Shaw’s way, who has not three but four WSM titles to his name. Thus far, he has never let Shaw earn two-in-a-row. It’s nothing personal. The massive Lithuanian simply likes to win! And he’s looking leaner and meaner than ever, tipping the scales at 173kg (381.4lbs).
