【動画】重量挙げ世界記録ホルダーの14歳少年がマッチョすぎる


子どもの頃「世界最強になってやる」と夢見た人は少なくないだろう。大抵の場合は夢のままで終わるが、ごくまれに現実味を帯びるケースもあるようだ。
その1人が、14歳のアメリカ人少年ジェイク・シェレンシュレガー(14歳)君。12歳で父親のトレーニングを見て影響を受け、自らも体を鍛え始めたという彼は、今では自分の体重の2倍以上の重量を持ち上げられるまでになった。


ジェイク君の現在の身長は5フィート3インチ(約160センチ)に、体重は119ポンド(約54キロ)。すでに自身の体重(123ポンド以下)の階級では世界記録を持っており、昨年6月には米ペンシルバニア州で開かれたパワーリフティング&ベンチプレスの大会でもそれまでの世界記録を破った。なんと136キロと、体重の2倍以上の重さを持ち上げられるという。

トレーニングを始めてから2年半が過ぎたが、今まで1日も練習を欠かしたことはないというジェイク君。「パパはすごく強いんだ。その姿を見るだけでモチベーションが上がるよ」と父親への憧れを口にしている。

また、そんな彼を間近で見てきたトレーナーのマイク・サーニ氏は、ジェイク君が「自分は負ける気がしない」と思っているとし、肉体的にも精神的にも強靭であると太鼓判を押している。ジェイク君の顔にはまだあどけなさが残るが、その肉体はもはや"大人の男"だろう。

大人にも引けを取らない強さを誇るジェイク君。だが一方では、重量挙げを始めるにはあまりにも早すぎたと彼の健康を危惧する声もあり、米国小児学会のポール・ストリッカー氏は、体が未発達の状態でのトレーニングは推奨しないと話している。この懸念についてはジェイク君の父親も認識しているそうで、トレーニングをしっかりと見守っているそうだ。「ジェイクは痛みなどを訴えたこともないし、定期的に検査もしている」と、父親のクリスさんは語る。また、母親のブランディさんは最初こそ心配していたものの、今では野球などほかのスポーツと同じようなものだと考えているそうだ。
