John Mallo

John Mallo - weightlifter
John Mallo, from Akron, Ohio, was the Heavyweight Sr. National Weightlifting Champion in 1933. The Nationals were held at the Chicago Word's Fair that year.  He totaled 760-1/2 lb. and his press of 231-1/2 pounds broke the previous record which had stood for six years, by five pounds.  This was even more impressive given the fact that Mallo had only been training for three years.  Mallo was a student of Larry Barnholth at the American College of Modern Weightlifting.
