(CA) Vegan strongman shoulders 550 kg — a record, perhaps — at vegetarian food fest
- Moments after apparently carrying more weight than anyone ever before,
German strongman Patrik Baboumian let out a roar and a couple
seemingly unlikely words: “Vegan power.”
The 34-year-old, who already holds world records for log lifts and
overhead beer keg lifts, carried a yoke loaded with just over 550
kilograms 10 metres across a stage at the Harbourfront Centre on
Sunday afternoon — at Toronto’sVegetarian Food Festival.
According to organizers, it’s the heaviest load ever carried —
equivalent to a large horse. (Guinness World Records spokesperson Sara
Wilcox said the attempt was for a new record category, “heaviest yoke
carry travelling 10 metres,” adding that Guinness can't verify the
record until it receives documentation.)
