English teenage girl is arm wrestling sensation

by | 24th, April 2009

overthetopTHIS fine figure of a girl is Joanne “The Hitwoman” Poole. She’s 17 years old and she’s the next big thing in arm wrestling.

Despite her tender age and her “petite” frame (according to The Sun, that is; petite is a generous adjective), Joanne is already the British women’s senior champion. It’s in her genes – her dad, Richard, is a former British arm wrestling champ.

Richard has trained his daughter since she was a toddler, perhaps hoping that the sport of arm wrestling would suddenly become both lucrative and popular. We can’t see it though, sadly for Jo and her freakishly big arm. She wants arm wrestling to gain Olympic status – again, we can’t see it happening.

Bonus arm wrestling vid! Over the Top movie trailer:

“The world has always bet againt Lincoln Hawk…”

Yes, it is Rocky but with arm wrestling instead of boxing.
