Thomas Inch in Later Life

Thomas Inch is one of the most fascinating physical culturists of the twentieth century. He was a pivotal figure in the organisation of British weightlifting, helped coach Arthur Saxon and was a great strong man in his own right.

Rarely do we get to see weightlifters in the twilight of their careers. Produced in 1939, the above British Pathé video gives us just a wonderful treat – Inch, then 58, showing the younger lifters a thing or two!
