The 2021 World’s Ultimate Strongman competition takes place September 17th, in Dubai, UAE. Here is a complete guide to watching the contest live and a breakdown on everything you need to know.
This year’s WUS contest is set to be one of the most exciting strongman contests of the year. Taking place the day before the boxing match between Hafthor Bjornsson and Devon Larratt, there will be a ton of exciting action to look forward to in Dubai.
There are two big names that fans are likely most looking forward to, seeing back in action, namely the return of Mateusz Kieliszkowsk, as well as Big Z, Zydrunas Zavickas. On top of that, this is perhaps the highest profile contest that features strongwoman competition, with both group of competitors completing the same events.

When it comes to the men’s side of the 2021 World’s Ultimate Strongman, of course Big Z and Mateusz are going to be drawing the most attention. However there is also some other interesting athletes to watch, such as 2020 WSM winner Oleksii Novikov, and JF Caron to name a few.
As for the women, Andrea Thompson is always someone worth watching, and if the mystery event involves some sort of deadlift element, she will likely excel. Another lady to keep an eye on is the ever exciting Donna Moore, but frankly there are a lot of interesting prospects on this lineup.
