Born in the US, Jimmy Findley moved to Grand Rapids as a child, a small town in Northern Manitoba. But when he made the move to Winnipeg, his life changed in ways he could not have expected. In 2013, he was voted ‘Male Arm Wrestler of the Year’ and won the Manitoba Provincial Arm Wrestling title. He and his wife Kristi’s lives are intertwined, not only through marriage and children but through arm wrestling. This loving father of two is hoping his two young sons will become the first Olympic arm wrestling athletes.  His younger sister Harleigh Marchant (also in the series) is also a force at the table.
