Celebrities of the family Cyr

Louis Cyr was baptized Cyprien-Noé Cyr on October 10, 1863, in Saint-Cyprien-de-Napierville. From the age of 8, he demonstrates exceptional physical strength, especially by carrying a calf on his shoulders. In 1878, when his family immigrated to Lowell, Massachusetts, he calls himself Louis to facilitate the English pronunciation. On May 27, 1895, he performed his greatest feat: support 1967 kg on his back. He died of nephritis on November 10, 1912 in Montreal.
