Let’s learn some extra things about George Charalampopoulos.

He was born on January 25, 1975 in Athens, with origin from the village Seliana Achaia-Ancient Phelloi.

At the age of 8 years old he made his first steps in sports with the sport of Wrestling in Greco Roman Athletic Club Atromitos Peristeri to 11 years.

13 jumps in weightlifting and Athletic Club Theseus Peristeri. At the age of 14 he starts to participate in races where he had considerable discrimination.

At the age of 15 he entered the national team of weight lifting. He continued with many national cups, international tournaments, Championship N. of Greece, and many other tournaments.

His acquaintance with Elias Mpazinas was an important part of his career because he was the one who persistently for years told him to try Armwrestling. Bazinas thought that Charalambopoulos was born for this sport. At the first match that took place in the region of Agios Dimitrios in 1994 he was defeated but this made him work harder towards his big success.

In 1995, as mentioned above, he took part in Bodybuilding in Lamia and won 1st place.

In 1998 he returns dynamically and constantly comes out first in Armwrestling 100 kg. He competed  with athletes 30 pounds heavier than him.

At the last Cup Championship 2013 George Charalampopoulos by winning the best athletes of Greek Armwrestling, he won 4 cups from all 4 categories(110+right hand, left hand, OPEN left & right).
