"The Sabotaging Swede"
I follow several victorian, Edwardian and history blogs to look out for ideas for the DAC, as well as general interest. One of these, the Victorian Peeper had a post, which mentioned the first body building competition. This was organised by Eugen Sandow who is called the father of modern bodybuilding. What struck my attention, was the fact the judges included Arthur Conan Doyle and Sir Charles Lawes.
There is an excellent article on the IFBB site, about the competition, which you can read here .
Took a fair time to write this story, so I hope you enjoy it.
