Name:Katy Ramsey Webpage: From: Roseville, CA Time: 01:48 Date: Sep 28, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: Berend Veneberg Comments: In 1992 I had the pleasure of meeting Berend Veneberg. We were both contenders on the American Gladiators TV show. Berend did very well in his show. We all laughed as three of the gladiators attempted to drag the huge Dutchman down in a game of "powerball". Berend is the kind of guy that you want in your corner. He helped me through winning my semi-finals show, and supported me in the finals. I returned the favor by visiting him in Holland for the strongest man in the Netherlands competition. It was very exciting to be there! Although we haven't spoken since, I was proud to see that he placed 5th in the world's in 1993. If anyone out there has the opportunity to meet Berend, I encourage you to!
Name:Nick Macaluso Webpage: From: New Mexico Time: 06:04 Date: Sep 28, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: Magnus ver Magnussen Comments: These competitors and this competition deserve
far more TV coverage than they get. Of course I shouldn't be watching TV at all -- I should be in the gym.
Long live the strong men! Death to the pencil necks!

Name:Sam Castellano Webpage: From: New York City Time: 00:09 Date: Oct 3, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: Jon Pall Comments: We need strong men in this day and age to have character like Jon Pall had. Magnus is also a great strongman but if someone else steps it up this year he will not get his record setting fifth title.

Name:Ryan Holmes Webpage: From: Los Angeles, CA Time: 18:40 Date: Oct 6, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: Magnus ver Magnusson Comments: For all of you who think Riku Kiri is the man, get over it. He'll never beat Magnus. Want proof? Here it is: last year it came down to Riku and Magnus in the final event. Riku needed a strong showing to beat Magnus, but when the event started, he gave up almost immediately, giving the title to Magnus. That's not the attitude of a champion. And that's why Magnus will own Riku forever. See you all in Primm at the end of this week! Magnus rules!
Name:WHIT BASKIN Webpage: From: OKLAHOMA Time: 22:11 Date: Oct 6, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: DON REINHOUDT Comments: FACT IS, KIRI WAS INJURED GOING INTO THE LAST EVENT--MAGNUS IS PERHAPS A BETTER "STRENGTH ATHLETE" BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PURE BRUTE STRENGTH KIRI AND BADENHORST ARE TOPS
SAME THING W/ KAZ AND SIGM. SIGM. WON 1 MORE TITLE BUT KAZ WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT STRONGER-PROBABLY 2ND ALL TIME BEHIND PAUL ANDERSON.-DONT GET ME WRONG, J.P. IS STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITES
IF YOU CAN DEAD., SQUAT, OVERHEAD, BENCH, ROW, AND CURL MORE THAN SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'RE STRONGER-BOTTOM LINE.-ANYWAY IVE GOT TO GO FOR THE POWERLIFTER THIS YEAR, MARK PHILIPI.

and Magnus, Gerrit and Riku DID NOT make the finals!
I am crushed!! I'm flying to Primm for the competition
and am disappointed that those guys didn't make it.
As far as I know 6 of the 8 competitors are:
One of the remaining 2 guys is from Fiji.
I'm still hoping for a great competition. See you there!

strong men carry anchors, run with cars strapped
to there shoulders and squat small Polynesian
children. I am going to train 24 hours a day so
that one day I can be a strong man.

him apart is his showmanship and down to earth mentality.

Name:Derek Webpage: From: Las Vegas Time: 15:35 Date: Oct 13, 1997 Favorite Strong Man: Magnus Ver Magnusson Comments: For an event that looks so cool on TV, the World's Strongest Man competition didn't appear to be very well organized, from what I saw this weekend. The schedule never seemed to agree with what was posted and publicized at the hotel. Not exactly the way to get lots of people to come out to "The desert behind Whiskey Pete's" in the middle of nowhere and cheer on our favorite sport. All in all, though, I would definitely go see it again.
