The roster for the most prestigious Strongman competition in the world is shaping up. The 2022 World’s Strongest Man is scheduled for May 24-29, 2022, in Sacramento, California. Unsurprisingly, the greatest athletes in the World will take part in the competition, and a few of them have already been announced.

The lineup already contains a few Strongman veterans, with the likes of Rob Kearney and Mark Felix taking part. However, it also features a few newcomers who could put up a brilliant performance in the competition. Pa O’Dwyer and Shane Flowers competed at the 2022 Britain’s Strongest Man, and they both looked incredible.

2022 World’s Strongest Man Announcement Predictions

A lot more athletes will be announced in the upcoming period, and we will update the article as they are revealed. The heavy favorites to win the 2022 World’s Strongest Man have not been officially revealed yet. However, we know that every previous winner of the WSM has a lifetime invitation for the competition.

We expect the 2021 World’s Strongest Man and 2022 Britain’s Strongest Man, Tom Stoltman, to be one of the athletes at the competition. Brian Shaw will also definitely show up, as he is chasing his 5th win in the competition. Oleksii Novikov and Martins Licis have also won the competition before, so their invitation is certain.

2021 Europe’s Strongest Man, Luke Stoltman, and the 2022 Força Bruta champion JF Caron are expected as well. If every one of these athletes shows up, there will still be enough room for more great athletes to fit. Furthermore, it will be interesting to see who else gets the invite.

The competition format of the 2022 World’s Strongest Man has not been confirmed yet. However, we can expect it to be like last year’s edition. The WSM consists of two parts, the qualifiers, and the finals. Usually, the winner of each qualifying group secures a direct path to the final, while the second and third place finishers face-off, and the winner of that also goes to the finals.
