SUPER MATCH 9 - PREVIEW


Don: Game of Arms


"Game of Arms" is a supermacho-man series that explores the "raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling." Producers Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik are no strangers to manly reality TV; they've won Emmys for their work on Discovery's "Deadliest Catch." While this clip was shot on the mean streets of New York, the producers traveled all over America — Erie, Pennsylvania; Kansas City, Kansas; Sacramento, California; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana — to document the wrestlers and their families. Every episode will climax with a regional competition, leading up to a tournament where prizes include cash and bragging rights.

Denis Cyplenkov - Feast of Epiphany


Feast of Epiphany, according to the Julian calendar is celebrated on January 6th, and in the Orthodox Church on January 19. Feast of Epiphany is one of the oldest in the Church. Orthodox Christians celebrate the feast of Epiphany by jumping into freezing water.

Johnny Walker The "Iceman"


" Think you train hard for arm wrestling? Then try Johnny Walker’s technique of strapping 20-pound sandbags around his wrists and wearing them all day at work.

And when you’ve finished work, go home and do your “real” arm wrestling training including preacher curls and table-top curls with heavy dumbbells, stretch-band pulls and one-arm pushups. Finally, to prepare for opponents who have quick top-rolls, toss a 50-pound dumbbell into the air and catch it on the way down…over and over again. (But don’t drop it on your toes.)

I first saw Johnny compete when Wide World of Sports televised the 1984 Petaluma World Wristwrestling Championship in 1983. It was easy to see why they called him the “Iceman.” He’d step up to the table, put down his elbow and stare coldly into space. It was as if his opponent didn’t exist. When the referee said “Go,” Johnny’s arm was a blur of motion. Most matches didn’t last two seconds.

In addition to the “Legends” and “Best Ever” exercises, it was decided that it would be interesting to compile a list of the 50 Greatest Armwrestlers of all time.

Using the initial list of eight legends, a panel of experts was once again consulted to come up with another 42 names to make up the “50 Greatest” list. Four of the same five experts were consulted, plus a new expert took part: Charlie Minell.
