For the second successive year the World’s Ultimate Strongman competition is taking place in the UAE, in Dubai, and it’s going to be bringing, surprise, the world’s strongest men to the emirate.

Taking place on Friday October 25 at Meydan Racecourse in Nad Al Sheba, you can expect to see some absolute units battling it out to be crowned, surprise, the strongest man in the world. As expected, Thor Bjornsson, also known as The Mountain, also known as Ser Gregor from Game of Thrones is due to defend his crown after winning last year. We’re expecting to see challenges like the Atlas balls and presumably some sort of vehicle-tow.

But it’s not just about what’s happening in the competition because there’s going to be loads happening across the day, including a sports zone, petting zoo and face painting for the kids, as well as an inflatable obstacle course, and an intriguingly-named “adrenaline zone” – we can’t wait to find out what’s happening there. You can also learn mixed martial arts and head to the carnival games area to win prizes – or just kick back with a bit of grub from one of the many food trucks knocking about.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at Dhs195 for general admission, or Dhs145 if you can get in during the early bird. Kids under 12 get free entry, and tickets are available at dubai.platinumlist.net.
From Dhs145. Fri Oct 25. Meydan Racecourse, Nad Al Sheba, dubai.platinumlist.net.
