MEET Matthias “Hellboy” Schlitte, the German arm wrestling phenomenon with one enormous arm.

While his left arm is normal size, Schlitte’s right is Popeye-like due to a rare genetic defect that makes his right forearm bone 33 per cent larger than his left. Schlitte first hit the arm wrestling circuit as a 16-year-old on the advice of his mother, and was ridiculed because of his light 65kg frame.

But what his competitors didn’t realise is that much of that weight was taken up by his right limb.
