What Chance Has the Small Man? – Strength Magazine – October, 1924

A favorite saying of professional trainers is “A good big man will always beat a good little man.” This is strictly true of sports into which the element of . personal contact enters, and of some athletic events such as weight throwing. In boxing and wrestling, the very best featherweight would have but a, poor chance against even a middle-class heavy- weight. In throwing the 16 pound hammer and the 56 pound weight, the big man is preeminent.
