Le grand Antonio
By Elise Gravel
At the age of twenty, Antonio arrived in Canada by boat. He is huge and very, very strong. He is one meter ninety-three and weighs 225 kilos. The Great Antonio likes to show his strength; he pulls crowded buses with his hair and fights Japanese champions. His hair is a thick braid and when he puts metal rods in it, they become antennas that allow him to communicate with the aliens!
The Great Antonio is Montreal’s most famous strongman and Élise Gravel pays tribute to him with her first book at La Pastèque.
