More than 260 amateur Strongmen and Strongwomen from all over North America will be coming to the Linq in Las Vegas on November 10 and 11, competing in five events that will test their strength and skill. 

I believe this to be the largest Strongman Corporation Nationals to date, with 265 competitors across six divisions and 13 weight classes. The top 20 percent in each weight class will earn invites to the Arnold Amateur World Championships in March, the largest fitness expo in the world. There are also nine pro cards up for grabs. 

The top three overall in the men’s middleweight and heavyweight division get their pro card, along with the overall winner the women’s lightweight, middleweight, and heavyweight divisions. Here are the events they will face:
