Produksjonsteamet bak WSM har vært kreative...http://www.theworldsstrongestman.com/blogstory.php?id=39
Here you will see 3 new WSM concept event ideas – these are not confirmed events, just fresh ideas from the boffins in the production team who are in the process of developing new events for the 2011 World's Strongest Man competition.
Your vote could make all the difference, so spread the word and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Let us know your preference by positing VOTE (LETTER):
a) Centrifugal Grip Test = VOTE A
b) Water and Bar Deadlift = VOTE B
c) The Catapult = VOTE C
Feel free to rank your preferences in “like” order if you “like” more than one! a) CENTRIFUGAL GRIP TEST
Athletes are strapped onto a huge, spinning column and have to hold two heavy objects on chains (washing machines used in this example). As the column rotates the washing machines spin outwards, increasing the weight at the hands. The athlete that holds onto the washing machine the longest is the winner.b) WATER AND BAR DEADLIFT HOLD
Athletes stand holding a long bar with large, empty perspex boxes on either end. A constant stream of water flows into the boxes, increasing the weight at a constant rate. The athlete that holds on the longest is the winner.c) THE CATAPULT
A boulder (atlas stone-type rock) rests in the basket in the arm of a catapult. Athletes turn a winch to supply the force required to move the arm of the catapult. The more the athlete can turn the winch, the more the arm will move which will increase the distance the boulder will travel in the air. Constant pressure must be maintained on the winch. Once the winch strain is too great and the athlete reaches his maximum resistance and releases, the boulder will be released. The athlete whose boulder travels the greatest distance is the winner.
N.B. The below is a catapault illustration only and therefore not a sketch of the actual event.
