Sacramento, Calif. (May 6, 2021) – The 2021 SBD World’s Strongest Man (WSM) Championship today announced the event line-up for this year’s competition taking place from June 15-20, 2021. Twenty-five of the world’s top strongmen are slated to face off in an epic series of events in Sacramento, including the first-ever Titan’s Turntable where athletes will push an antique locomotive 180 degrees. The 19th century JW Bowker steam engine will be sitting on top of a California State Railroad Museum Turntable, originally built in 1911.

Additional events include the REIGN Keg Toss, featuring 35 pound kegs courtesy of REIGN Total Body Fuel; Fingal’s Fingers, a WSM original event named after the mythical Scottish warrior that sees athletes raising and toppling poles ranging from 400 to 660 pounds down a 25-meter course; the KNAACK® Deadlift, which will feature KNAACK® jobsite boxes as legendary and durable as the World’s Strongest Man event itself; and WSM classic, the Train Pull, where athletes will pull a train car weighing between 50 and 80 tons down a 20-meter track in a race against time, marking the first time this event has been in the WSM line-up since 2003.
