Strongman Games return to Ocean Center
Have you seen someone pick up a car and carry it for 50 feet? What about pick up and press a log over their head for 60 seconds? It’s okay if the answer is no; most people haven’t. But that doesn’t have to be the case for long.
Nov. 12 through 14, the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach will host 300 athletes from more than 30 countries to compete for the title of “World’s Strongest” across nine different divisions at the 2021 SBD Official Strongman Games.
Attendees will watch the strongest men and women across nine weight classes and age groups battle in events including the log press, car walk, deadlift, carry and drag, sandbag toss, and atlas stones. The massive list of competitors includes new athletes looking to establish themselves in the sport, as well as popular, well-known names. The event will be the largest international strongman competition ever held.
“The sport of Strongman and Strongwoman is unique. It requires the competitors not only to be immensely strong, but also to be athletic and adaptable. You won’t find a car to carry in a gym. Most of these athletes will be carrying a car for the first time during this event,” said Lynn Morehouse from Official Strongman. “Throughout the three days of competition, fans will be able to watch the best of the best battle it out, as the field narrows from 300 competitors to just the top 10 athletes per division for Sunday’s exciting finals. It’s the ultimate spectator sport—full of energy, emotion and excitement!”
