Katie Brumbach was one of fourteen children born to circus performers Philippe and Johanna Brumbach. In her early years, Katie performed with her family. Katie’s father would offer one hundred marks to any man in the audience who could defeat her in wrestling no one ever succeeded in winning the prize. It was during one such performance that Katie met her husband of fifty-two years, Max Heymann.
Brumbach once defeated the famous strongman Eugene Sandow in weightlifting contest in New York. Katie lifted a weight of 300 pounds over her head, which Sandow only managed to lift to his chest. After this victory, she adopted the stage name “Sandwina” as a feminine derivative of Sandow.
Sandwina worked in the United States with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for many years, until she was nearly 60. One of her standard performance feats was lifting her husband (who weighed 165 pounds) overhead with one hand. She performed many other feats, such as bending steel bars and resisting the pull of four horses. Sandwina’s record stood for many years until being eclipsed by women’s weightlifter Karyn Marshall in 1987.

"malala is a role model for EVERY LITTLE GIRL regardless of race and religion"
no no n
no no fuck stop it
it is not regardless of race and religion
she is a role model SPECIFICALLY for muslim little girls around the world. little white girls around the world have TONS of role models. everywhere. literally all over television, books, you name it. admire Malala, yes. that’s not what is being said. do not take something that is meant for a specific culture simply because you want it.
do..you.. know anything about Malala? because I’m pretty sure she would read what you just said and be severely disappointed.
this post makes me so angry. you are actually implying that this little girl is not allowed to be inspired by Malala because this girl isn’t Muslim, and that is just… so wrong. That’s terrible.
My philosophy of non-violence was only meant for Indians! Everyone else should just ignore me.
My charity was only meant to inspire my native Albanians. Everyone else should just forget about it
My courage and perseverance should only be a light unto fellow disabled people. Other people should realize I am just “not for them.”
My discoveries? GERMANS ONLY!
My charity work was really only meant to inspire Brits, not actually help anyone who isn’t my skin color and nationality.
I only care about Tibet. The rest of the world can suck it!
i literally cannot believe someone just got schooled by jafar from aladdin
