Liam’s first display of super strength was when he was 5 months old. He did an iron cross. 

Neil and Dana were startled. Soon they started sending Liam for gymnastics. They made Liam join the Cassell Gymnastics and Dance. 

While other kids were struggling with chin-ups, Liam had already gone much far. Chin-ups were as easy as ringing doorbell for Liam. 

At this stage where other children were practicing chin-ups, the strongest toddler started hoisting his torso above the chin-up bar and stayed in position for minutes.
