Ken Patera


Ken Patera crushed competition and broke records everywhere. He hurled Track & Field shot putters to the side. He pushed to the top of the weightlifting world winning countless medals in the Nationals, Pan Am Games and the Olympics – and was the first American to ever clean & jerk over 500 pounds. In pro wrestling, he main-evented for the AWA as one of Andre the Giant’s biggest foils and held the WWF Intercontinental Title concurrently with the NWA Missouri Championship. These accolades were the results of hard work, but it wasn’t an easy road. With obstacles, injuries, and an intense pressure to succeed, witness the fitness of the “World’s Strongest Man” and just how he handled bearing the “Weight of the World.”
