DOVER — Michael “Iron Mike” Wonyetye of Berwick, Maine, calls himself the Romanian Viking that no one knows. At 65 years old, 176 pounds, 5-feet, 3-inches tall with a titanium knee, Iron Mike is able to do a seated dead lift of roughly 805 pounds. He credits much of his immense back strength to his ancestors — farmers and plowmen of southeast Europe.
