The Mann Family Heads To The World Powerlifting Championships In Japan This May
Steve Mann played football at Abington Heights graduating in 1994. He turned to the world of Powerlifting from that point in his life and hasn't looked back. State championships, national and world titles bestowed upon the "Mann of steel" now for nearly 25 years. At 264 lbs in his prime-Mann could squat over 900, bench press 700, and dead lift more than 680 lbs-three times his weight. At Nationals last September in Scranton Mann qualified for the World Championships in Tokyo Japan in May in the bench press in the masters one division along with his 15-year-old son Jacob in the sub-junior. The family tradition carries on.
