Hugo Girard is a former IFSA World’s Strongest Man and six-time Canada’s Strongest Man. Cut in the mold of fellow Quebecer Louis Cyr, Hugo has an appetite for self-transcendence and has set numerous Canadian and World Records.
Having met Sri Chinmoy in 2006, Hugo quickly developed a deep friendship with the spiritual teacher.
In fact, on their first meeting, Sri Chinmoy held a special weightlifting demonstration just for Hugo. Bill Pearl flew to New York from his home in Oregon with his wife Judy for this special exhibition.
In the following video, Hugo is lifted with two stone lions as well as powered by Sri Chinmoy on a merry-go-round.
