The 2021 World’s Strongest Man, running from June 15th-20th, continued on today, with Day Two of qualifications, in Sacramento, California. This is a breakdown of all of the action, which saw some more exciting performances from the best strongman athletes in the world.
Day Two of the 2021 WSM only featured two events, with each qualifier group completing one. However this was one of the most exciting days of competition, with fan favorite events like the Train Pull and Fingal’s Fingers.
The contest continued through to the second day, with the absence of several athletes. Luke Richardson withdrew after the first event, due to injury, and Terry Hollands announced his WSM retirement, after suffering an injury of his.
Then on Day Two, Chris van der Linde was revealed to have been forced out due to injury. At the time of writing, no information has been revealed as to the specifics of his injury.
While the contest will not be available to watch the 2021 World’s Strongest Man until later in the year, there is a special, Behind-The-Scenes programming available through the WSM official Facebook page.
Below are the results and standing from the second day of the contest.
