Favorite Strong Man: Jon Pall Sigmarsson!!!
Comments: After discovering The World's Strongest Man Competition on ESPN late one evening a devoted and growing following of the exploits of the strongest men in the world has unfolded on the college campus of Bowling Green State University. Our group has blossomed from a mere four to an exstatic dozen plus. We visit the WSM homepage on a regular basis and are entranced by the powerful charisma of the one and only Jon Pall Sigmarsson!!! Jon Pall, although sadly gone to Valhala, has become a virtual idol amongst us all. Hearing the cry, "I'm a viking" echoing throughout the hallway is commmonplace and we all have found room in our hearts for the Icelandic dynamo. We eagerly await a more regular broadcast of the World's Strongest Man Competition and are life long fans. -I am the stongest! I am the viking!!, Jon Pall Sigmarsson Devoted fan, Cory Sedlmeier

Comments: Great site. It's really disappointing that the 97 WSM did not include our favorites, and it appears to be because of publicity reasons. This means that the 97 WSM winner may not really be the World's Strongest Man.

Favorite Strong Man: Magnus Ver Magnusson
Comments: Great site! I'm an Olympic Lifter myself so I personally think Andrey Chemerkin (world record clean & jerk 262.5Kg / 577Lbs.) and/or Ronny Weller are probably the world's strongest man/men but I guess that would be comparing apples and oranges. I can't believe this years WSM competition didn't have the favorites competing in the finals. Surely Magnus, Gerrit and Kiri all couldn't have lost that much strength in a year. I agree with Magnus in thinking that the former champion should get a bye into the finals. It really reflects poorly on the credibility of the sport when this kind of situation happens. Anyway, I think the sites great and am looking forward to future events where I'm sure Magnus will regain his crown.
