Uplifting – The Only way to Describe Yakubu.

September 3, 2012 at 7:32 am Leave a comment

The Paralympics Powerliftng competition is something to be seen to be believed and we wish Perth’s Darren Gardiner all the best as he goes for gold in the next few days.

However congratulation must go to Nigerian Yakubu Adesokan who twice broke his own world record as he powered to gold at the Excel stadium. The thirty three year old lifted 180kgs on his way to Gold, almost four times his own weight! He was taking part in the 48kg category!

Truly remarkable.
