The Arnold Strongman Series features the strongest athletes in the world competing in a series of Professional Strongman Competitions at Arnold Classic Events in the United States, Europe, Australia, South America, South Africa and Asia. Qualifying events are held throughout the year, culminating with the Arnold Strongman Series World Championship in Columbus, Ohio. The Santa Monica Championship Competition will serve as the final qualifier for competitors attempting to compete in the World Championships in March, 2019.
2018 World Series Champion, Thor Bjornsson, better known as the Mountain from HBO’s series “Game of Thrones” is scheduled to appear as he prepares to defend his title. Three-Time World Champion and top American challenger, Brian Shaw has already qualified for the 2019 World Championships, but plans on taking the first Santa Monica Championship.
Fueled by the recent fire devastation in California, the 2019 Santa Monica Championship gives sponsors and attendees a chance to support the victims of the Woolsey and Hill Fires in Thousand Oaks and Malibu. Proceeds will be split between the Ventura County Fire Department Widows, Orphans & Assistance fund, CDF Firefighters benevolent foundation, and the Santa Monica Firefighters Relief fund.
