You could safely call Colin Janiszewski, a 17-year-old Chesterton High
School sophomore, the strongest kid in Duneland.
You could also call him the strongest kid in America.
On April 24, at the Son Light Power (SLP) Gym in Tuscola, Ill., Janiszewski
set a new SLP national record in the 165-pound 16-17 age division by bench
pressing 330 pounds at the SLP National Bench Press/Dead Lift Championship.
And thatís a raw record: a no-help, no-suit, unassisted lift. Previous
record: 320 pounds.
Oh yeah, Janiszewski only weighs 156 pounds himself.
In addition to setting the new record, Janiszewski won the Best Lifter
trophy at the SLP competition. Earlier in the year, on Jan. 10, he won VIP
at the 11th annual regional weight lifting competition at Hobart High
Colinís dad, Chris Janiszewski, told the Chesterton Tribune that his
son works out 90 minutes a day, six days a week.
