Fit Bodies: Statues, Athletes and Power Exhibition

The Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs proved their fitness every 30 years in Sed festival and today such physical prowess is not expected from our political leaders, though arguably we still prefer tall and slim Prime Ministers / Presidents in Anglo world.
