Strong Swedish women, strong (?) Japanese men

I found a clip on the Internet that was quite funny. It is from a Japanese TV show where a Swedish 20 year old girl arm wrestles with Japanese comedians specializing in looking strong.

First there is a bowling challenge with some other people but at 23:16 the part with the Swedish girl starts. Clip here. The actual arm wrestling starts at around 30:30.

The girl is Sarah Bäckman who is world champion of arm wrestling, so she is better at this than an average Swedish woman. She is very funny in the show when they ask her things like "How long do you think it will take to beat these four men?" or "What did you think of this game?". The faces the Japanese men make after the games are over are also very funny.
