The A to the Q to which is the most-watched TV sporting event after the Formula 1 in Hungary, some folks perhaps should need more than a minute and only a few could immediately give the right A, which would be „The Giants Live Budapest”.  The last year’s competition was broadcasted through the largest European sports channel, so thanks to the EuroSport channel millions of fan were interested in viewing the „strongies” nearly in 90 countries, mostly  broadcasting  live on time.  The contest in June, 2012 took place at the Ramada Resort Aquaworld in Budapest, Hungary. It was the most prestigious strongman contest of our last quarter of our century. Many may have followed and know it ended with domestic success.

The finalist in the competition,  gained the Giant „V” was fought by Mr. Akos Nagy, who won the award and the right as to be the official World’s Strongest Man. After ten years break, Hungary was granted further representation.

After last year’s Hungary’s  participation in organizing such a successful competition won the right to organize this year again the World Cup qualifiers Giants Live strongman competition.

Who will be the strongest … this isn’t the Q of head-or-tail! There will be out there 10 already strongest men to hold your breath with them at the same time.  An amazing spectacular competition, with the contestants to “mobilize” around 2 tons in a single event.
