The prestigious competition, Sweden's Strongest Man 2023, is taking shape with some critical changes in the competition roster and an intense set of events awaiting the competitors. The finale, which kicks off on October 14 at 13:00, at First Class Arena in Västerås, has already begun to generate buzz in Strongman circles and among fans.

Latest updates on Sweden's Strongest Man 2023:

Recent news includes Andreas Ståhlberg, the reigning champion, announcing his withdrawal from the competition on 29/9. Jesper Hansson, who was previously a reserve, now takes Ståhlberg's place. This change has added an extra dimension of excitement to the competition. Additionally, 4 of the 10 competitors come from our powerful, Team NTGear, which underlines the team's dominance on the Strongman scene.

Athletes in Sweden's Strongest Man 2023:

Events in Sweden's Strongest Man 2023:

  • Squat: This was chosen by Andreas St√•hlberg before his withdrawal. The competition will involve lifting 285 kg without the use of knee wraps or a suit. Athletes will squat down to boxes measured to their height, ensuring equal depth for all.
  • Tire Flip: Marcus Yngvesson has chosen this classic, where the large and heavy tire is to be flipped eight times.
  • Yoke: Fredrik Svensson chose the yoke where athletes will walk four times five meters with ascending weights - 400 kg, 440 kg, 480 kg, and finally 520 kg. After each stretch, athletes get a ten-second rest while loaders add the weights.
  • Log Press: Joachim Kvick chose this press event. Athletes start by pressing a log weighing 150 kg, followed by 165 kg and finally as many reps as they can at 180 kg.
  • Medley: Johan Espenkrona chose a medley of Fingal's Finger and Sandbag Carry. This involves first flipping the finger, then carrying a 150 kg sack to a podium that is 130 cm high, and then doing the same thing again.
  • Apollon's Axle Deadlift: Cim Johansson chose this grip challenging deadlift with an Apollon‚Äôs axle with an overhand grip, without the use of lifting straps.
  • Deadlift or Wheel Deadlift: The last event, either deadlift or wheel deadlift with maximum weight or repetitions, will be determined through an exciting coin toss.
