Big news in the Strongman world as The World’s Strongest Man announced today that Rogue Fitness will now be their official equipment sponsor but what does this mean for Strongman?
Announcing: Rogue Fitness is the official exclusive equipment sponsor of Worlds Strongest Man!
By Kalle Beck
I don’t see how it won’t be a net positive. You can look at the impact Rogue Fitness sponsoring the Arnold Strongman Classic has had. The prize money went up to making it the highest paying contest in Strongman not to mention the great video production Rogue Fitness produces for the Arnold Strongman Classic. A big equipment sponsor should result in more and better equipment for the athletes competing and to warm up with.
The other way this benefits Strongman as a whole is showcasing Strongman to a larger audience base outside of the sport drawing more athletes and fans from other types of fitness to Strongman.
A lot of fans have speculated with Rogue’s base in The United States they would have some pole to bring WSM to America for 2018 or perhaps live stream the event. First Live stream is highly highly unlikely I think and from what I have heard of rumors of dates and locations for 2018 Worlds Strongest Man I don’t believe it will be in the USA but if more news is learned I will be share to post it here.
