At the start of this week the 30 strongest and biggest men in the world are all traveling to the Philippines for Worlds Strongest Man. From following the various athletes on social media it seems like there are some brutal flights with 4+ flight changes and day long layovers though most seem to be benefiting from business class seats lets take a look at how this over looked part of the contest is going for the athletes and their messages before they take off.

Starting my journey to the Philippines and my 10th Worlds strongest man appearance. I was proud to do 1 so to hit 10 a huge achievement. 7 weeks ago I wasn’t sure I would be going. In November I slipped a disk in my back and 7 weeks ago I had a small tear in my quad. Prep hasn’t been perfect but I feel strong and I’m looking forward to another battle. Thank you to my team who have managed to get me ready for this, you guys are all awesome. #wsm #warrior #gym #motivation #strength #strongman #Power
On this LONGGGGGGG flight to Taiwan and I wanted to thank everyone who’s been behind me. I’m so incredibly blessed by the people who are around me. The people who value me and the people who keep me strong. I put in a lot of work and I’ve sacrificed more than I ever dreamed to be here right now but it wouldn’t be possible without you. Thank you for making me who I am. It’s almost time for the big one. Worlds Strongest Man; and for some reason I always get a little more honest as battle approaches. I guess I feel I owe it to those of you who’ve stood at my side. For you I will come back with my shield, or on it.
Today I fly out to achieve a goal and a dream. I have been chasing this dream for a few years now. I had a few things happen along the way that were obstacles and tested me and my drive to achieve BUT I never gave up. Never let anyone or anything take away your dreams. I NEVER DID👊 Here I come!! 2018 Worlds Strongest Man @international_protein @sportssupercentre @cerberus_strength_australia @p3sportsgoldcoast @sportssupercentre @stand_or_submit
Next week I get to represent this flag for the second time at @theworldsstrongestman. It’s every strongman’s dream to compete at this competition and I will be sure to give 110% and leave everything out there. I will not be satisfied until I achieve my goals! @xploape @sbd.usa @sbdapparel @theheliopatch @w.o.w_straps
Nu är sista träningspasset avklarat, på tisdag går planet mot Fillipinerna och världens starkaste man. Känns hedrande att ännu en gång få representerar Sverige på denna tävling. Tack för alla lyckoönskningar och hjälp jag fått längst vägen. Nu är resten upp till mig! #wsm2018 #teamtyngre #barebells #nocco #handsomehansson #strongman
