Strength on the Athletic Field – Strength Magazine – August, 1927

The question has often been asked : “Who are the strongest athletes?” Which might lead us into a very lengthy discussion if we were to consider every branch of sport and gymnastics that could be included under the heading of “athletics.” However, herein we will deal entirely with the track and field events and the various specialties included in that class of athletic competition. A list of these would include the sprints, hurdles, jumping, vault, middle distance runs, and about five different throwing events.
