Little Richard Sandrak rose to fame in his childhood as a mini bodybuilder. Unsurprisingly, then, he came from a sporty background: his father Pavel was an award-winning martial artist, and his mother competed in aerobics.

Richard was born in the Ukraine in 1992. A couple of years later, though, the family upped sticks to Pennsylvania. And it was here that Pavel introduced his son to weightlifting – at the very tender age of two.
