World?s strongest boy lives in Sumy
« on: 21:26 05-Feb-2013 »
Yehor Leonenko set bench press power lifting record for eight-year-olds. However, doctors warn against following his example

The record was set during the regional powerlifting competitions held at the Institute of Physical Education of Makarenko Sumy State Pedagogical University on January 26 by the eight-year-old Leonenko who resides in the city, weighs 39 kilograms and trains under the guidance of his father Andrii Leonenko, a senior lecturer at the institute.

He eventually went on the lift 41kg, 2kg heavier than his own weight!

I understand that generally, any weight training other than with light weights is considered risky  or detrimental to the growing ends of the bones of children.
