The 2022 SBD World’s Strongest Man Competition will air nationally on CBS and CBS Sports Network. KNAACK, a trusted leader in tool storage and security, is an official sponsor of the World’s Strongest Man (WSM) competition, a natural alignment because of the brand’s legendary strength and durability, which fits perfectly with these world-class events and athletes.
For 46 years, the WSM competition has challenged competitors’ physical and mental strength, stamina, skill and strategy through a series of extreme challenges. This year’s live event took place at the end of May in Sacramento, Calif. Spoiler Alert: There were a total of 30 competitors with Tom Stoltman ultimately winning for the second year in a row. The 2022 champion, representing Scotland, weighed in at 400 lbs and 6 ft, 8 in.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the WSM competition for the second year in a row”, said Stacy Gardella, Head of Global Marketing Technology and Operations at WernerCo. “This is such a unique event that pairs perfectly with our brand’s attributes of being the toughest jobsite boxes, storage and productivity tools.”
