Posted on Friday, January 13th, 2023 by John Wood
Peter Cortes, of Boston, Massachusetts was stricken with double pneumonia as a child and it necessitated the removal of one of his lungs. He was not expected to live very long there-after but he not only beat the odds but also became a champion weight lifter. His specialty was heavy one-arm deadlifts, one of which can be seen in this post Above he lifts a 120 lb. anvil with one finger.
