In 2020, we’re sure you’re all too familiar with sporting events being delayed and cancelled. In the case of the 2020 World’s Strongest Man competition, it was hit with a delay and unable to go ahead on the scheduled May date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, on the other hand, it didn’t stop the event from going ahead in November. However, there were certainly complications!
We congratulate the Ukrainian Strongman Federation. Oleksii Novikov from Ukraine became the youngest persons since 1984 to who win the World’s Strongest Man title.
