Zarynoff Beats Winrow

The Examiner – August 20, 1928

Contestants Counted Out


The Russian wrestler, George Zarynoff (12.13) gained an easy victory over Jack Winrow (12.7), of England, at the Brisbane Stadium on Saturday night, scoring two falls to one.  It was a poor contest, and the contestants were frequently counted out by the crowd.  Early in the second Zarynoff secured a reverse Boston Crab, and a submission fall.  In the following round Winrow secured a headlock, and ultimately weakened the Russian sufficiently to hold him down for a fall.  In the fifth round Zarynoff threw the Englishman on his head, and secured a fall.  Winrow was in such a dazed condition that he was unable to continue.  Zarynoff was the smarter, and probably the more finished wrestler of the two.
