Henri Ferrari
French Weightlifter Henri Ferri is all smiles as he sets a new 82 kg one-arm record lift at the Japy Gymnasium in Paris, circa 1945. How many lifters do you know of who can put bodyweight overhead with one arm? Ferrari was a 9-time French Champion and set 28 French records and nine World records in his career. Ferrari also won a Bronze medal at the 1946 World championships in the Light-Heavyweight class with a 390 kg total (120kg+120kg+150kg).
