2021 America's Strongest Man or Woman On-Line Qualifier
On Sept. 25th, 2021, America’s Strongest Man heads to Lone Star State! Since “everything is bigger in Texas”, Strongman Corporation is creating a big opportunity for top athletes that have not yet earned their Pro Card. For the first time, elite amateurs will have the opportunity to compete alongside Strongman Corporation pros, and the highest placing amongst them will receive their official pro status.
How does one qualify to compete with America’s strongest at ASM? As you know the top 3 in each overall division at Nationals already earned their pro cards, and thus are eligible to compete at ASM already. This year, the 4th, 5th, and 6th place athletes from 2020 Nationals will also be eligible to compete at ASM and ASW in each division!
What if you did not compete at Nationals but feel like you have what it takes to compete with America’s strongest pros like Trey Mitchell, Gabe Pena, and last year’s champion Marcus Crowder? Strongman Corporation will be hosting an online qualifier from which we will accept the top 3 submissions in each division. The qualifying events will be very heavy; if you intend to compete with the caliber of athletes’ we will have at ASM, these are minimums you need to be able to do. We love you all dearly, but this opportunity is designed for people that are world class strength athletes that just haven’t clenched that pro card yet.
