Famous Yorkshire strongman J.C. Tolson took his stage name (The Mighty Young Apollon) from his own idol, Louis Uni – Apollon the Mighty, who was most famous for his grip strength. The Mighty Young Apollon had a great grip strength himself, as he managed to lift a 65 lbs lead block with his thumb and finger alone. He also wrote a famous book on Strength Secrets.
