Belarusian Kiryl Shymko Was Invited to Take Part in the Japanese Strongest People Planet Show
People recognized as the strongest in different sports and martial arts traditionally take part in the world-known Japanese show. This year the show recording is taking place on December 14-17 in Japan with the Guinness Book record holder Kiryl Shymko who represents Belarus.
Kiryl Shymko is famous for setting several unique world records (both solo and joint). For instance, in autumn 2006 he managed to pull a passenger plane Boeing-737; in March 2007 he dragged a train of five railway passenger carriages. Among the most notable joint records (set by Mr. Shymko in pair with another Belarusian athlete – Pavel Saroka) were pulling an IL-76 aircraft weighing approximately 150 tons over a 3 meter distance (July 2007) and towing a T-34 tank (31 tons, 5 meter distance). Later in October 2011 the Belarusian record holder singlehandedly managed to move a BelAZ heavy truck weighing 55 tons.
The Japanese television is planning to broadcast the strongmen show on the New Year's night.
