He’s the defending world champion on the Rolling Thunder and now Roman Penkovskiy has been certified on the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper, as another indication of his world class grip strength.

Penkovskiy started his athletic career in athletics, moved to weightlifting, then fighting and now he is focusing on armlifting and his talent in and focus on grip strength is evident.

The 22-year old Penkovskiy is 2 meters (almost 6’7”) tall and weighs 110 kg (242 lb), and between his exuberant personality and strong performances, he was a crowd favorite at the Los Angeles FitExpo earlier this year, where he competed in Odd Haugen’s grip contest.

Many thanks to Dmitriy Suhovarov for refereeing on Roman Penkowskiy’s official attempt to close a Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper—Roman, it’s official and your name has been added to the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper certification list.
