Don’t get crushed with envy, but Nikita Yurkovets (Belarus) has only been training on grippers for about six months and he’s just been certified on the Captains of Crush No. 3—the most-recognized feat of world-class grip strength on the planet.
At 22 years old, Nikita Yurkovets is a force to be reckoned with: He’s 192 cm tall, weighs 110 kg and has his sights set on winning the APL Armlifting World Championships, becoming a strongman champion, and said his “next step is certification on the CoC No. 3.5 gripper.”
Many thanks to Dmitriy Suhovarov for refereeing Nikita Yurkovets’ official attempt to close a Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper, and congratulations, Nikita: it’s official, you have been certified, and your name added to the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper certification list!
