There is a total of 24 Strongmen on the roster to this point. That is six less than the total from 2022. There are two glaring absences from the list and that is Martins Licis and Oleksii Novikov, who won the 2019 and 2020 World’s Strongest Man titles respectively.
There is a chance that Novikov, who has been seen training on his YouTube page, is added later. Mark Felix is also assumed to be added if he is healthy enough to make it to Myrtle Beach.
There is officially a roster and likely some to be added in the future. Fans can not begin preparing for one of the biggest weeks in Strongman.
