William Pullum
Birth: Apr. 8, 1887
Death: Aug. 29, 1960

Athlete. Born in London, England, he was known as "The Wizard of Weightlifting". His early life was marked by sickness and disease. At the age of 17, he saw the famous Arthur Saxon Strongman Trio perform and immediately decided to take up weightlifting to improve his condition. In less then a year, he achieved a 2-hands-anyhow lift of 204 pounds and was later the technical advisor for the British Amateur Weight-Lifting Association (BAWLA). During the 1920's, he was a trainer, helped promote the sport of weight lighting and was the author of two great strength books which are still available almost a century after they were originally written. Over the course of his career, he won 15 Championships, 50 Gold Medals and set over 200 British and World's weight lifting records. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
