Today’s news:

The only preview of Sunday’s arm-wrestling championship you will ever need!

The Brooklyn Paper

Update: This event this video is previewing has been canceled because of the impending storm. This story was written in advance of its cancellation.

Our reporter, Dan MacLeod, took on the ultimate power couple — arm wrestling champions Joyce Boyne and Harry Wilson — and lived to tell about it.

But talk is cheap, as our video shows.

What you’ll see is no surprise, given that Boone is the city’s female champion, and Wilson is the second-ranked man as they both go into Sunday’s Brooklyn-Kingsboro Arm Wrestling Championships in Brighton Beach.

As for Dan? Well, he’s taking a breather.

Brooklyn-Kingsboro Arm Wrestling Championships at the Brighton Jubilee Festival’s main stage [3264 Coney Island Ave. near Brighton Beach Avenue in Brighton Beach, (718) 891-0800], Aug. 28 at 1 pm. Free to watch. Contestants must register between 9:30 am and 12:45 pm. Update: This event has been canceled. For info, visit www.nycarms.com.
