In particular, the “Greek Strength Games” team brought a 78 kg dumbbell, known as the “Thomas Inch Dumbbell”, to Monastiraki, challenging passers-by to lift it with one hand.
In fact, whoever succeeded would win a monetary reward of 50 or 100 euros, depending on how far they would raise it. Essentially, they would have to lift the dumbbell with one arm off the ground, bring it over their head, and then lower it back down.
The attempts of passers-by were many, as many were the optimists who believed that they could succeed, since the dumbbell looked simple.
However, it is not only simple, as its handle has a diameter of 5-6 cm. Which means that whoever tries to lift her, will have to have quite a lot of wrist strength. This is probably the reason why none of those who tried were able to complete the challenge correctly.
