This German boxer is either sweating a whole lot or slathered in oil.

  1. My guess is oil. But the stop-action caught the punching bag in "motion." Unlike the supposed javelin hurler and discus thrower, this man looks like he's really engaged in his sport.

    1. It does look realistic, but we don't know how they staged it.

  2. I can't figure out why most of these photos were obviously staged. Nobody throws a javelin or a discus like these men are supposedly trying to do. Maybe it was some kind of inducement to encourage others to join a specific organization?

    1. Well, I think they were sometimes going for dramatic impact over realism, and the discus thrower in this series is particularly lame. They certainly weren't going to attract athletes that way.
