Don Reinhoudt

Brocton's Don Reinhoudt was known as the world's strongest man. He won the title in 1979 in the CBS World's Strongest Man Contest in Los Angeles after finishing second the previous year.

From 1971-80 Reinhoudt set 36 world records in powerlifting. From 1971- 75 as an amateur he set world records in the squat (935 pounds), bench press (606 1/2 pounds) and dead lift (885 1/2 pounds). He was the world champion of the super heavy class and senior national champion of the super heavy class from 1973-76. ln 1972 he finished third in the world championships.

As a professional from 1978-80 he set world records in the 8,000-pound trolley pull, 10,000-pound trolley pull, 20,000-pound Mack truck pull, 3,000- pound barrel press and 1,000-pound girl lift. Those honors earned him a place in the Guiness Book of World Records.

He also holds the world record in the teeth lift (350 pounds), car lift (2,500 pound) and the 150-pound dumbbell press (15). He has a total of 36 national records and is the only American super heavyweight to hold every powerlifting world record at once. He is a member of the world and national power lifting hall of fames.

Reinhoudt had been a football and basketball player at Fredonia Central School before he became interested in weightlifting while attending Parsons College in Iowa.

Don Reinhoudt was inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame in 1983.
