I know some people were asking about this before, just posted on the WSM website: http://www.theworldsstrongestman.com/event.html
"We have great pleasure in announcing the location and schedule for this yearâ??s competition heats and finals.
The Worldâ??s Strongest Man will be held in Malta this year.
Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta offers not only a great location for this year’s WSM competition, but is rich in history and culture, so promises to be a great host country.
Just a few hours flying time away from most European cities, and therefore easily accessible from anywhere in the world, the Maltese Islands offer an exhilarating contrast of colours: the azure of the Mediterranean, the mellow honey-coloured limestone which characterises the architecture, and clear skies. The Islands are a feast for the senses.
Qualifying rounds will be held between 26th and 29th of September, with the Finals being held from the 1st to 3rd of October. Weâ??ve got a few more surprises to give you about this yearâ??s event, with a few â??firstsâ?? for The Worldâ??s Strongest Man. Watch this space and weâ??ll keep you up to date!"
