NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Meet Jeff Dabe – the man with monster forearms and giant hands.
Jeff’s arms are a whopping 19-inches in circumference and his hands are so big he is able to grip a basketball in each one.
Nobody knows exactly why he is so large – he was simply born that way.
Doctors concluded long ago that he has nothing wrong with him and say he is not suffering gigantism, elephantiasis or any other condition or disease.
Jeff, from Stacy, Minnesota, USA, meanwhile has embraced his strength and became a champion arm wrestler – earning the nickname Popeye for his super-human strength.
The 52-year-old said: ‘I arm wrestled as a senior in high school. The fans way back then were the ones that named me Popeye.’
But Jeff, who is happily married to wife Gina, popped his arm in a contest in 1986 bringing a temporary end to his career.
He later started competing again in 2012 with his left arm instead, going on to become state champ and competing in the World Armwrestling Championships.
He said: ‘Thanks to the World Armwrestling League I am now competing with people from all over America. It’s so fun to travel to places we wouldn’t normally go.
‘I was always good at arm wrestling, but the size of my hands did shock people at first – I had the strength to back it up. People freak out when they see my hands in real life.’
