Famous bodybuilder and social media icon Larry Wheels has become a prominent name in the global arm wrestling fraternity in recent times. The 26-year-old has been involved in two of the major arm wrestling events of 2021, previously making appearances on the undercards of the first and second editions of King of the Table last year.
Larry Wheels visits Kerala, pulls the state’s Arm Wrestling Association members
Most recently, Larry paid a visit to the state of Kerala in India, where he met several pullers belonging to the Kerala State Arm Wrestling Association, including Stewe Thomas, the two time National 70 KG Arm Wrestling Champion who stunned Larry and others for his sheer power despite a slim build, which had Larry dub him as the “Schoolboy” of India.
In the street arm wrestling circuit, Aleksandr Beziazykov is more prominent by his nickname “Schoolboy”. The Russian arm wrestling icon is known for his sheer power and Larry himself had suffered a brutal 6-0 loss against Schoolboy in the first edition of KOTT in May last year.
Days before King of the Table 2 took place on 11th December, Larry Wheels, with his Manager and videographer Adam Silver, had travelled to Kerala to meet up with the faculty of the state’s Arm Wrestling Association and pulled every one of them on the table.
While Larry as well as was able to get the better of Stewe, he and the rest were amazed by the 19-year-old’s strength, who was able to hold his own against arm wrestlers much bigger than him.
