The 2024 World’s Strongest Man competition is set to take place from May 1-5 in Myrtle Beach, SC. A loaded group of the best Strongmen in the world will gather in one place to see who will take home the most-coveted title in the sport. On Tuesday, the official list of events for both the qualifying and final stage were announced.

Mitchell Hooper returns to the WSM to defend his title from last year. Hooper has been at the top of Strongman for two years now. He has logged back-to-back Arnold Strongman titles as well. Challenging Hooper will be the likes of Tom Stoltman, who is a two-time champ, and 2020 WSM winner Oleksii Novikov.

Recently, Martins Licis and Mateusz Kieliszkowski announced that they would not be competing in this year’s competition due to specific injuries. There will be replacements for the two Strongmen included at a later date.
