up close and personal with jesse beckom III
posted: January 2, 2014
For an ex-linebacker and bouncer who can squat 545 lbs—three times—it caught me off guard when Jesse Beckom III admitted he loves listening to Christina Aguilera and Pink to get pumped for competition. Since he was being so forthcoming, I felt it only fair to dig a bit deeper with more personal questions. What did I learn? That, among other things, ice cream sure is popular among high-performance athletes.
