The 2021 World’s Strongest Man took place June 15th-20th, at the Old Sacramento Waterfront in Sacramento, California. This is everything you need to know about the contest, including where to watch the action in the United States this weekend.
Featuring 25 strongman athletes from around the world, this year’s WSM had a lot to offer. It will feature a litany of challenges, including some never-before-seen events, to determine who the strongest man in the world is.
Initially it did not seem that fans would be allowed to attend this year’s event, but that was changed a few weeks out from the competition, with tickets being put on sale. However that will not be the only watch to watch the action from the west coast.
