THIS over-the-top family contains some of the world’s greatest arm-wrestlers. Led by matriarch Joyce King - a 13 times world champion - the Kings devote huge chunks of their lives to the traditional bar sport. Three generations of the family have taken it up, including Joyce’s daughter Jessica King, 28, and granddaughter Josie King, 20. Even more impressive is the fact that Joyce, from Fredericton, Canada, has returned to the arena after a nasty arm-break last year. Mother-of-two Jessica is now a two-times world champion herself, while Josie Montana King, a full-time student, has won two golds in Canada’s Arm Wrestling Championships. The rest of Joyce family, while not quite reaching the women’s heights, are also all keen arm-wrestlers. These include Joyce’s son Cody King, 28, and grandchildren Hailey, seven, Jaxson, seven, Jacob, six, and Jenika, three.
