The Continuous Flux of the 2024 World’s Strongest Man Roster

The 2024 World’s Strongest Man (WSM) contest is scheduled for May 1-5, 2024, in Myrtle Beach, SC. It is the second consecutive year the sport’s most prestigious contest is featured in the sunny south of the East Coast, but the competition’s tide has been turbulent.

Before diving into the shake-ups, below is the 2024 WSM roster, which is subject to change:

Before the entire 2024 WSM roster was fully revealed, it hit with significant change-ups. The 2019 WSM Martins Licis withdrew due to a sciatica flare-up triggered at the 2024 Arnold Strongman Classic (ASC) in early March. On April 1, 2024, two-time WSM runner-up Mateusz Kieliszkowski withdrew due to an Achilles tendon injury.

Following the 2024 Europe’s Strongest Man (ESM) contest in Leeds, England, on April 13, 2024, 2020 WSM champion Oleksii Novikov withdrew from the 2024 WSM. Novikov secured a bronze medal at the 2024 ESM but had to step on the podium in an arm sling.

As of April 17, 2024, three slots vacated by Licis, Kieliszkowski, and Novikov remain unfilled. Whoever gets the nod from Giants Live to compete in Myrtle Beach will have to perform on short notice with little to no prep.

It is often said that anything can happen in strongman. That notion certainly holds in the lead-up to the 2024 WSM contest.
