Do They Ever Come Back? – Strength Magazine – July, 1921

On the evening of May 6th the Polish wrestler, Zbyszko, aged about forty-five years, won the world’s championship from Lewis the American. In the sporting press Zbyszko has been
hailed as “the aged wonder,” and “the one old man who ever came back”; but to those interested in the possession of bodily strength, Zbyszko is interesting as an example of the well-known fact that an athlete who specializes on heavy-weight athletics retains his muscular strength well on into the autumn of life.
