COPYRIGHT 2012 NC POWERLIFTING & STRENGTH SPORTS HALL OF FAME
Danny McMillan was born in Gastonia, NC. He has lived in or near Gastonia all his life. Danny started lifting when he was thirty years old. He was 5' 5 1/2" tall and at that time he weighed 125 pounds. He wanted to gain some size and weight so he started working out at home. Danny wanted to learn more about lifting so he joined a gym later on. 25 years later, after 180+ meets and holding multiple NC State, National and World records he says he is still trying to figure out how to lift.
Danny has competed as far north as Canada and as far south as Puerto Rico in World meets. He is one of North Carolina's most decorated and accomplished bench pressers of all time.
