Pierre Bonnes, 1903

Posted on Monday, May 8th, 2017 by John Wood

Pierre Bonnes was a great French strongman and weightlifter who was at his best in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In 1898, he set the “official” world record in the One Arm Snatch with a lift of 85.5 kilos. He bested this lift on several other occasions albeit under unofficial conditions. Here’s how Bonnes looked after winning the “World Strength Championship” in 1903. (Bonnes won again in 1905.)
