Strongman Elbrus pulls truck in show of Herculean strength

“The Strongest Man on The Planet”, as Russian strongman Elbrus Nigmatullin has come to be known, performed a feat of inhuman strength on Friday (November 2) by pulling a 26 tonne truck for 41 seconds.The accomplishment was called an undoubted Russia-wide record, and maybe even a world record, but no officials were present at the event to verify that claim. However, it is the record and yardstick for Nigmatullin himself, as he told reporters immediately following the pull.The event came as part of the first National Sports Olympics of the Turkic-speaking peoples of Russia. Nigmatullin is a Russian athlete and public figure, master of sports in powerlifting and armwrestling and has won numerous prizes for his strength over his lengthy career.
