Ab Wolders


  • From: Holland

  • Weight: 276 lbs.
  • Born: June 10, 1951
  • Chest: 51"
  • Biceps: 20"
  • Personal Info: Known as the world's fastest strong man, Wolders always put on a surprising performance for a man of his size. He worked as a bouncer in the Netherlands and was once bitten on the arm while attempting to remove an unruly patron from a club. The wound developed septicaemia and doctors thought they may have had to amputate his arm. Fortunately, he recovered and continued to compete in powerlifting and strongman competitions.
