9 Year-Old Minden Boy Smashes 7 National Weightlifting Records
At 9 years old, Tate Fegley is poised to become a national champion. This 3rd grader from Minden, Louisiana has already broken 7 American records in weightlifting. That's right, this kid is one of the strongest in the nation.
Tate has only been training for a year and a half, but does so religiously. Every morning he hits the weights at 7am sharp with his personal trainer, Peyton Gray. Gray told KTBS that Tate's success is due, 100% to his unstoppable work ethic.
Those broken records that I mentioned earlier include a 92-pound bench press, 190-pound squat and a 230-pound dead lift. The burgeoning strong man did it all in one day. Tate is now training for the national championship meet held in Daytona Beach, Florida this August.
