Otago Witness – July 6, 1899

“Greek George,” a champion wrestler and weight-lifter, is at present in Dunedin. He will probably give an exhibition of his great strength shortly. He has a standing challenge to the world for wrestling in Graeco-Roman, catch-as-catch-can, collar and elbow, side haul, and Cornish wrestling.  “Greek George” has travelled nearly all over the world. He has credentials to show that he fought in the recent war between Turkey and Greece.
