Re: Physical Culture at the Olympics Games

As early as 1907, patriots in the Chinese YMCA promoted a campaign that linked physical education to national strength, posing three questions: “1. When will China be able to send a winning athlete to the Olympic contests? / 2. When will China be able to send a winning team to the Olympic contests?...

Unlike the original books, however, their version of Athos is the strongman and Porthos is far more slender than in the...

Re: Entries from 1626

Novembre 11 Ces derniers jours, je me demandais si je devrais vous dire ce qui s'est passé lorsque ces gardes m'ont chargé, en partie parce que je crains que lorsque vous lisez ces entrées, vous pensiez que je suis un idiot complet, car je crois que le peuple grec J'appelais des gens qui n'avaient ...

The Best Physical Culturists of the 1980's

Overview If the 1970's was the decade when muscle ruled the world, the 1980's was the decade it dominated. You could not move for demonstrations of muscular physiques in everything that existed.

Ken Patera: Although a high school athletics star, he did not take up Olympic weightlifting until 1968 and won his first Olympic weightlifting title in 1971, therefore it took him three...
