Richard Sandrak

Richard Sandrak, also known as Little Hercules (born April 15, 1992) is a Ukrainian-born, American bodybuilder, martial artist and actor, renowned for his physique at an extremely young age. He is probably best known for his appearance in the documentary The World's Strongest Boy, which has been shown on several TV channels across the world, and for his dedication to bodybuilding.[1]


His ability to bench press heavy weights, as well as his training regimen, have made him known in the media of many nations as "The Strongest Boy in the World".have worked to get him a career in movies, much like Richard's idol, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the family even launched a line of supplements featuring Richard's picture on the packaging that Richard himself promoted. Richard is also an accomplished martial artist, able to perform spinning kicks, and balance himself on a basketball with one leg stretched upward. These abilities owe to the stretching exercises that Richard's mother had him perform since the age of two years, which she also conducts with Richard's younger sister.[citation needed]

He is working with a speech therapist to reduce his Ukrainian accent and improve his general acting skills. Hoping to be an action movie star, he has starred in a trailer for a proposed film called Tiny Tarzan directed by Joey Travolta, in which Disney has expressed interest.[citation needed] Some of his more notable appearances include The Sunday Times (London), Examiner (twice), Fox Sports News, Today Tonight, A Current Affair, 20/20, The Howard Stern Show, and Viva (Poland).[citation needed] His current projects include a training video, and a cookbook on healthy eating co-written by his mother. He also appeared recently in a Boost mobile commercial in the United States. Richard appeared in a new movie called "Little Hercules in 3-D".
