The Amazing Corey Whitfield by Detroit News Photoblog

Detroit News Photographer John T. Greilick writes about nationally ranked power tumbler, Corey Whitfield. He was a street tumbler, but as a high school student started eating lots of fast food and putting on the pounds. At 5 feet, 9 inches, he topped out at 240 pounds two and one-half years ago. Then he found the All World Gym, trained hard and today is a world-class tumbler weighing in at a just 140 pounds. John writes:
I've recently completed my first multi-media web feature, a two minute video on Corey Whitfield, 21, of Detroit demonstrating his skills as a nationally-ranked power tumbler and trampolinist. The audio track is Corey rapping about power tumbling and how it turned his life around.
And a great first feature it is!
