Strongman Competition

Friday, July 14 to Sunday, July 16
Community Park South

 

Strength competitions have been happening for as long as humans have roamed the earth. Strongman as a sport originated in the U.S. in 1977 with the first “World’s Strongest Man” competition, and it has continued to grow as a sport since then. At this years Calgary Stampede, professional competitors will include the 5th Strongest Man in the World, and Canada’s Strongest Woman!

 

Over this three-day competition, competitors are expected to lift, carry, push, and pull various oddly shaped, large, heavy items – including the Stampede president, David Sibbald’s GMC Sierra Denali 3500 HD pickup truck, in a race against one another to determine who has the greatest mix of overall strength and athleticism.

 

These events will be separated into amateur and pro divisions for both men and women. In addition, spectators can enjoy CrossFit and Powerlifting, as well as information and demonstrations on Strongman, Strongman Kids, MAS wrestling and Highland Games.
