World’s Strongest Man 2021 Day Two Results & Recap

A complete breakdown of the World’s Strongest Man 2021 Day Two Qualifier

After day one of the World’s Strongest Man 2021 – Brian Shaw, Tom Stoltman, and JF Carion were leading the pack with some impressive numbers. The first day also saw a number of competitors drop out due to injuries. Luke Richardson and Terry Hollands both were forced out of the event, Richardson due to a bicep injury, Hollands due to a “pretty serious” injury incurred in the Loading Medley.

Day two of the World’s Strongest Man 2021 qualifier featured only two events. Unlike the first day, the groups only competed in one event each. Despite a smaller number of events – fan favorites the Train Pull and the Fingal’s Fingers were the two events on display today.The crowd was riled up for a truly exciting spectacle of strength.

During the course of events on day two, Chris Van der Linde was confirmed to have dropped out of the competition due to an undisclosed injury. This comes after both Luke Richardson and Terry Hollands withdrew from the event previously.
