Doug Hepburn: Canadian Strongman

hepDoug Hepburn is undoubtedly one of the great Canadian athletic legends.

At the peak of his career he was considered the strongest man alive.

Doug is now acknowledged by many – along with Paul Anderson – as the grandfather of modern powerlifting.

Most importantly Doug Hepburn should be seen as a true strength innovator.
