World Strength Games
Get ready to be enthralled by the exhilarating World Strength Games, set to unfold within the electrifying atmosphere of the Sheru Classic World Sports Festival.
The most elite deadlifters from the United States are converging to challenge the long-standing American Deadlift Record set by Jerry Pritchett in 2016, an astounding 1025lbs. This remarkable event offers a high-stakes reward of $20,000, generously sponsored by Blackstone Labs and made possible by the support of Captain Corps Entertainment Productions. The discerning eyes of Jerry Pritchard and Magnus Ver Magnusson will oversee the jaw-dropping feats on display. Anticipation is building as the World Strength Games welcomes 250 athletes hailing from 30 different countries. Across two action-packed days, you’ll witness the awe-inspiring attempts of ten athletes as they strive to shatter existing world records and etch their names in history.
In tandem with the World Strength Games, we are honored to collaborate with the legendary Magnus Ver Magnusson, hailed as The Father Of Strongman. Together, we will co-host the Magnus Ver Magnusson Adaptive Athlete World Championships, a pioneering event that brings together adaptive athletes from around the globe. A remarkable 51 participants from 12 nations are set to compete, marking this occasion as the largest Adaptive Strongman gathering in history.
Adding to the excitement, we’re thrilled to announce the presence of the reigning 2023 Worlds Strongest Man, Mitchell Hooper, who will grace the World Strength Games – Sheru Classic World Sports Festival with his formidable presence.
