WATCH: Strongman pulls world’s largest helicopter


A Belarusian powerlifter has pulled world’s biggest helicopter with the help of ropes, in Minsk.

Kirill Shimko pulled the nearly 50 ton aircraft with the help of ropes. He says psychological training was one of the important factors in his attempt.

Shimko says he hopes to host a TV show in the future which he has already discussed with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

The strongman believes the TV show would be something impressive not only for the country but also for global community.




Moving house! Russian strongman sets new world record by pulling 30 tonne two-storey wooden CHALET behind him 

A Russian strongman has successfully pulled a two-storey house behind him to set a new world record.

Elbrus Nigmatullin, from the Ural Mountains, dragged the 30 tonne wooden house over a track measuring ten foot in the city of Chelyabinsk.

A small rail track equipped with ladder rungs was assembled by engineers prior to the attempt to assist the strongman in his world record challenge.

Captured on video, Nigmatullin warms up by squatting with large tyres before getting into position in front of the house and attaching straps.

He gets the crowd going and then begins pulling the structure behind him, which starts rolling along the track.

Eventually he reaches the end and celebrates his world record by punching the air.

Speaking after the event, the strongman noted that he was nervous going into the challenge, despite his extensive preparation.

He said: ‘The weight of the house and its size causes fear even among the strongest people.

‘I am not going to conceal it – when I first saw the house, I had doubts and I was only about 30 percent sure that I could manage to do something with it.

‘However, as the saying goes – the eyes are afraid, the legs just do it.’

This is not the only record the Russian athlete has set in recent months.

In March 2015, Nigmatullin lifted a 1,543lb camel named Vasya atop a 440lb platform.

He held the combined weight of 1983lbs above his head for a total of 44.78 seconds.
