Ahead of the arm-wrestling national titles in Sydney over the weekend, hopeful competitors paid a visit to Brekky Central on Thursday morning.
Competitors Charlie and Sam first battled it out, with the loser having to face Kochie.
“I didn’t know I was going to be up!” Kochie exclaimed.
After the competitors had their turns, Kochie was pitted against Sam.
“I think you’re going to have to access some old man strength,” Charlie told him as words of encouragement.
“It’s a real thing – old man’s strength exists.”
“Old man strength?” Kochie repeated.
“How old are you?” Sam asked, prompting Kochie to share he is “in the masters class”.
After co-host Natalie Barr counted them down, the wrestle began fairly evenly.
“Let’s hear a roar, let’s hear a roar,” Charlie encouraged Kochie.
Desperately trying to hold on, Kochie turned to the camera, displaying grit and determination.
But it wasn’t enough.
The presenter was eventually defeated as he yelled out, ‘No, no, no!”
“He didn’t break your arm did he,” Nat asked her co-host, concerned.
“Good on you guys,” Kochie said.
Following the segment, the host shared a re-post of him wrestling Sam, as Nat and Charlie smiled behind them.
“Don’t think I qualify for the National Arm Wrestling Champs this weekend,” he said with a laughing emoji.
