Sportsman No. 1 (最強の男は誰だ!壮絶筋肉バトル!!スポーツマンNo.1決定戦, Saikyō no Otoko wa Dare da! Sōzetsu Kinniku Batoru!! Supōtsuman Nanbā Wan Ketteisen, "Who is the Strongest Man?! Grand Muscle Battle!! Sportsman No. 1 Decisive Battle") was an annual program made by Monster9, the same company that produces various series such as Kinniku Banzuke and SASUKE.

After Monster9's bankruptcy, the rights of Sportman series were inherited by TBS. Due to this, in 2012, the show was rebooted by TBS under new title Sports Danshi Grand Prix.

Tournaments[]

According to Japanese media, the correct way to count the competitions is to include every tournament in chronological order instead of grouping the various kinds of tournaments separately. Each Sportsman show regardless of its kind, would have a Roman Number placed on the end of its Japanese name.
