Welcome

This is Ontario Strongman - once home of the Ontario Strongman Association, and your internet source for Strongman information in the Province of Ontario since 2003. Check out our Resources section for articles and workout spreadsheets.

The site - and the Ontario Strongman Association - came into existance at a time where there was no cohesive direction from the national level, and no central point for Ontario promoters and athletes to come together, plan shows, plan training and workshops, or just communicate with one another. The website admirably fulfilled the stated purpose of organizing and bringing athletes and promoters together across the province, and the Association mandated rules and standards for sanctioned competitions, and fought for (and won) the right to select the athletes to participate in "Canada's Strongest Man".

All things must come to an end. Mike Saunders, a Quebec strongman competitor, went to great lengths to establish a new national organization (CAASA) with representation in each province or geographic area. CAASA is now in their third year of operation, and have been fully embraced by the strongman/strongwoman community. In conjunction with the CAASA efforts, and with the advent of Facebook, Canadian athletes now have a strong communications network, rendering this website unnecessary. With this in mind, the OSA will no longer be "sanctioning" competitions, and this website will be updated only sporadically, unless promoters wish to post their competitions in the Forum, which remains active. Competition posts may also be made on the OSA Facebook page. This site will remain online as a resource and as an archive for past competitions. Please check the CAASA website for local sanctioned competitions.
