Aside from possessing one of the all-time coolest names, Jaan Jaago was another in a long line of great Estonian wrestlers. He was a seven-time world champion: 1913-1915, 1924-1926 and 1928.
A look at the great Estonian strongman/wrestler Georg Lurich giving a few friends “a lift” in the wrestler’s bridge, sometime around 1910. As someone who has a little experience with bridging with additional (human) weight, I can tell you that this feat is as impressive as they come.
Of the thousands of posts that I have put up on this site, I have to say that this one is one of my absolute favorites: a rare picture of the Estonian strongman Georg Lurich performing the Human Link with a pair of ill-tempered camels!
