Default Didn't know this ...

each day, we learn something. Never knew that President Lincoln was an accomplished wrestler.

On the U.S. frontier, young Abe Lincoln was a great - 02.06.95 - SI Vault

Apparently, 9 of the former US presidents were good grapplers.

Did not know that. Speaking of wrestling, very disappointed that it was dropped from the Olympics.

That is a shame. The reason given by IOC is really surprising. They say that wrestling lacks "global popularity", when just about every country in the world has its own wrestling style.

When the Olympics were revived in 1896, they opted to keep one of the two original Greek Martial arts, i.e. wrestling and dumped Pankration. Now that they are dropping wrestling, I can only wish they re-consider bringing back Pankration.

And Truman was a champion squatter. See post 7: http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/art...hose-legs.html


Sorry for recycling my own material, but that picture of Truman still makes me chortle

Global popularity sounds like a poor excuse.

Team handball. Are there any universities across the globe that have this as a sport?
