Day 1 (June 13th) of the World’s Strongest Man 2018 competition was exciting with the monster truck pull and farmers walk/yoke medley, and now that day 2 (June 14th) has concluded, we’re getting closer to seeing who the top guys will be heading into the final on Sunday.
Now, tomorrow will be a “last man standing” event where athletes will lift until failure but we’ll keep you in the loop for further details. Sunday will host the final event and the “World’s Strongest Man” will be crowned.
