Ernest Cadine (Dead)Lifts The Apollon Wheels
Only a handful of legendary strength athletes were able to lift The Apollon Wheels overhead, but several strongmen were able to give it some air time in other ways. Here is a little known shot that few people have seen of Ernest Cadine deadlifting the Apollon Wheels in a pair of wingtips and in his street clothes. Look close, yes, he did have a mixed grip. I wonder if he was in the act of dropping the weight just as this photo was taken or of it’s just a defect in the film — we’ll never know for sure, but Cadine was certainly no slouch in the lifting department.
