Meanwhile, the old saying “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” still holds true, and case and point above we have Cpl. Robert Hamilton of the 1st AAF, who was stationed in Italy during World War II.
Cpl. Hamilton was an avid lifter in the States, but in Italy, there weren’t any weights to be found. Not wanting to miss workouts, Hamilton improvised with what was available and got the job done with this pair of narrow gauge train wheels.
