about the video
Viktor Kochmar isn’t just a world powerlifting champion; he’s also an Orthodox priest in his hometown. Crowned as the world champion in 2012 and 2015, Kochmar has won 64 gold medals. His bench press record that won him the top spot in the world is 250 kg. And feels that it’s his faith that helps him in his sport as well. He leads a church service in his village every Sunday.
