Our own champion!

March 12, 2011

We have a pretty amazing set of people working with us at Jeevan Sahara Kendra.

We did not realise we have a champion power-lifter in our midst. Last weekend Santosh Sable – one of our family case managers – participated in the “Mayor’s Cup” lifting competition organised by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation.

Competing in the 60 kg category (he weighed in at 59.25) Santosh managed to lift 82.5 kgs in the bench press, 170 kgs in the squat and 215 kgs in dead lift. This comes to a grand total of 467.5 kgs – almost half a ton!

That almost-half-ton was enough to get Santhosh first place in his division! Hooray! We are thrilled with Santosh – who has been with us since December 2010. We knew that Santosh visited the gym regularly – but little did we know that we have a city-wide champion in our midst!
