How to Watch the 2024 World’s Strongest Man

From May 1-5, athletes vying to be crowned the strongest man in the world at the 2024 World’s Strongest Man (WSM) will duke it out in Myrtle Beach, SC. If you’re not in South Carolina, you’ll have to wait a bit for full coverage, as the 2024 WSM won’t be livestreamed. Here’s how you can still keep up with the happenings on the competition floor.

Fans aren’t doomed to forever piece the competition together through their social media feed — although that promises to be fun, with fan favorites like defending champ Mitchell Hooper and soon-retiring Rob Kearney vying for the title. CBS and the CBS Sports Network will air footage from the contest all summer long, with event coverage starting on May 28 and running through July 27. These episodes will also air on Paramount+ (Live).

Would-be spectators in the UK will have to wait a whole lot longer — all the way through to December, when the competition will be broadcast on Channel 5.

2024 World’s Strongest Man Roster

With a little less than a week to go before the 2024 WSM begins, the roster is still uncertain.

Some top names are already missing from contention, as powerhouses like two-time WSM runner-up Mateusz Kieliszkowski, 2019 WSM Martins Licis, and 2020 WSM Oleksii Novikov all dropped out of the contest in the days and weeks leading up to the show.
