Pretty Joanne Berberich might look like your average 21-year-old but the petite mother of one has muscled her way to an astonishing world title – in arm wrestling!

Superfit Joanne started wrestling as a child and has already scooped 25 British titles and a medal at the European championships.

But the nursery worker is now a world champion after beating the globe’s best female fighters to the coveted title.

Despite her five foot six inch frame, she regularly wipes the floor with burly blokes who naively challenge her to battle.

Joanne’s gruelling training schedule involves four hours-a-day of running and weight lifting more than three stone to keep her in tip-top arm wrestling condition.

She took the crown after winning all but one of her ten matches at the World Arm Wrestling Federation Championships in Poland.

She said: ‘It was absolutely crazy.

‘I had competed the day before with my right arm which really isn’t my favourite and I only came fifth, but the next day I got up early, had a really good breakfast and felt better and went on to win with my left.

‘It was a bit nerve racking because the girl I had to beat in the final was the first match I had and she beat me.

‘I like to win with power rather than technique because I like to use strength and if I’ve won that way it means I’m stronger than you.’ see more
