Lt. Johnny Yong is used to setting records. He already is the state's oldest corrections officer at 81, and now he is adding the title of weightlifting champ after bench pressing 250 pounds.
"I hurt myself with the 440. It ripped a rotator cuff. The doctor told me: 'Johnny, your power-lifting days are over,' but I trained slowly and came back. Last year in Vegas, I broke the world record with 337.1 pounds.",
Yong, who performed as "hand balancers" with his brothers, toured with Ringling Bros., the Harlem Globetrotters and Bob Hope, and appeared on television shows hosted by Ed Sullivan and Carol Burnett.
