Biography

While Filippo Bottino won the heavyweight weightlifting competition at the 1920 Olympics, he lost another more remarkable encounter during the Games. He had been insulted by champion fencer Aldo Nadi, and challenged him to a duel. It was fought using rather odd weapons: Nadi used a riding whip while Bottino fought using a wooden beam. The duel was decided rather soon, as his opponent immediately struck Bottino's hand, causing him to drop the weapon. In Genova in 1922, Bottino bettered the World Record in the two-armed press, bringing it to 118 kg, becoming the first Italian to break a weightlifting World Record. Bottino also won 11 Italian championships, six in the heavyweight division, and five overall titles.
