MET-Rx®, the leader in sports nutrition, will once again be the official sponsor of The World's Strongest Man Event to be held in Charleston, West Virginia. The Qualifiers will take place on Saturday, September 6, 2008 through Tuesday, September 9, 2008 and the Finals happening on Friday, September 12, 2008 through Sunday, September 14, 2008.
The World's Strongest Man competition is the best-recognized annual international event in strength athletics. For over 30 years, the brawniest men on the planet have come together in a series of unique and amazing tests of strength to determine who is the world's strongest. Competitions include pulling trucks, lifting cars, carrying 600lb stones, throwing kegs and many more muscle-challenging courses. The World's Strongest Man is the long-running strength athletics competition series and is produced by IMG Sports Media* for ESPN in the United States, Channel 5 in the United Kingdom and other broadcasters around the world.
MET-Rx has been the official sponsor of the event for over a decade including prior affiliations with champion strongmen Bill Kazmaier and Mariusz Pudzianowski endorsing the brand's line of products. Director Patrick Cornacchiulo tells us "MET-Rx is proud to carry on the legacy of representing the best athletes in the world through this competition and will continue to 'shape every body' as the leading global sports nutrition brand."
The competition, which has traveled to stunning and varied locations such as Zambia, Iceland, Mauritius, Malaysia, Morocco and China, will be hosted in the United States for the second year in a row. For many loyal American fans, this may be their last chance to see it live and so close to home as next year's event has been rumored to again take place in an exotic overseas location.
MET-Rx will be in West Virginia sampling delicious new products including the New Met-Rx Big 100 Colossal High Protein Brownie Bars and the delicious NEW Big 100 Colossal Pretzel Bar.
