You armwrestled the greatest armwrestler of all time and didn't even know it.

I took an interest in Brzenk this past summer. I found it amazing that he was able to defeat men that had over 100lbs on him and arms 4-5 inches bigger of pure muscle at armwrestling and do it in such impressive fashion. I was even more amazed that he's been top dog by far in that sport since the mid 1980s and that he's basically prevented 2 generations worth of armwrestlers from being top dog and is currently preventing the 3rd from taking over.

Those who compete in armwrestling idolize Brzenk and are usually just happy to get the chance to pull with him, let alone aspire to actually win.
