Jainer Cantillo, or the ‘Human Rock’ as he is known, has been one of the best Americas powerlifters for the last decade.
The Colombian participates in the highly-competitive men’s up to 80kg category but still managed to finish in fifth place at the Mexico City 2017 World Championships.
He was also on the verge of claiming his first Paralympic medal at Rio 2016 as he ended in fourth position.
In 2015, he secured the Americas Open Championships title in the men’s up to 72kg. Four months later, he again reached the top of the podium at the Parapan American Games in Toronto, Canada.
When he is at trainings or competitions, Cantillo enjoys listening to heavy metal music.
