Profile: Paul Koskinen

Biography


Interested in weight training since his mid-teens, Paul has been working out sporadically for several years. Resuming a solid training program since August 2002 and viewing televised strongman events has fired up his interest in strength-related sports. Recognizing that he's starting in strongman later than most, Paul takes hope from athletes such as Odd Haugen to inspire accomplishment in the coming years. His goals are simple: an increase of strength along with improved event coordination, and there will be no limits.
