Larchmont Power-lifter Tapped for Westchester Sports Hall of Fame

World champion power-lifter Robert Herbst of Larchmont is one of four county athletes who will be inducted into the Westchester Sports Hall of Fame in October. The others are: former Stepinac and Providence basketball star Marty Conlon, who went on to a nine-year NBA career; former shot put world record-holder Henry Korn Jr., who starred at Stepinac and Manhattan College; and former White Plains football standout Dean Loucks.

Mr. Herbst won his 14th consecutive national power-lifting title earlier this year. He has 22 national titles, 11 world titles, and seven world records. He also coaches myriad youth sports and is a Platinum Award winner in the President’s Fitness Challenge. He raised $10,000 for tsunami relief and went to Sri Lanka to distribute the funds himself.
