Giant "bodybuilder" on St Thomas

June 12, 2017 09:12AM

Hi.

I'm looking for a person who lives or has lived on St Thomas, and that I heard about a few years back.

I talked to a Swedish man who is a judge in bodybuilding contests. He told me that when he visited St Thomas in 1989 (or around that year), he met the most muscular man he had ever seen. He was a giant, about 210 cm tall. He was working in the harbour carrying boxes with fish. He was quite well known on the island because of his enormous body, and because he was tremendously strong.

Since this was 28 years ago, he might not live on St Thomas anymore, but maybe someone here recognize my description? I would appreciate very much if you could give me some info about him.

Greetings from Sweden,

Mickepicke

Do you recognize this description about ANY of the Virgin Islands?

It is very strange that no one knows anything...

So again, a VERY tall incredibly muscular person living on ANY of the Virgin Islands in the end of the 80's/beginning of the 90's?

I would recommend that you put this on the relocation board. There are several people there who actually lived on St Thomas since (or even before) 1989.

We just came back from a cruise. Our taxi driver in Charlotte Amalie on st. Thomas was Winston Hanley, muscle man. His taxi is a red ford that haules 22 people at a time. It’s called muscle man taxi or something like that. Of course he is a old man now and not as tall and muscled up. But he had pictures of his body building years all over the taxi.

If that helps any, please let me know
