Strong in Akron, Ohio

History in Color:

Akron, Ohio, USA, 1946 – Young weightlifters of one of all-time best U.S. coach Larry Barnholth during a joint photo session in their hometown of Akron (left to right):

Jim Newman, Peter George, George George, Tony Levenderis.

The ACMWL club of Larry Barnholth was one of the most interesting places to learn weightlifting and to train at the time. And, of course, the George brothers were outstanding and, perhaps, one of the all-time strongest family in the world.

Just a blast from the past and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the George family!
