The World’s Strongest Child and Me : DOCS

Today we’re more and more fanatical about fitness than ever before with gym membership for adults AND kids on the rise. But there are a group of kids who don’t want to stop at just being fit, they want to be the strongest too. In The World’s Strongest Child and Me, Mark Dolan explores the disturbing world of strong kids and tries to uncover the real motivations of the parents who defy medical advice to train them up from a young age. Mark’s search for the strongest child in the world takes him from a controversial ‘kiddie powerlifting’ contest in America, to an Olympic weightlifting boarding school established in the former Soviet Union, and to Ukraine’s nightclubs where he discovers a family of girls trained up from birth to perform in a circus strong man act.
