Biography

  • Lucas's full-time job as a personal trainer means his physical fitness and strength is through the roof - he's just the person you'd want on your side in an arm wrestling competition.
  • He can 'dead-lift' three times his own bodyweight of 88kgs. So that's, erm, about 275kgs. Wow!
  • His resting heart rate is 37 beats per minute. Even more wow!
  • He's the Jason Statham/Liam Neeson of the grid, sort of... He keeps it quiet, but he's also trained in Krav Maga - an Israeli martial art focusing on self-defence. Crikey.
