This kid is only 12 years old but can lift more than twice his body weight.
Weighing in at 10.5 stone (66kg), Kyle Kane from Conventry can lift a whopping 22 stone (140 kg), a figure many grown ups can hardly manage.
He broke the World Association of Benchers and Deadlifters record at a charity event where he lifted the 308lb of iron. In an interview with the Daily Mail, he had this to say:
I just want to be as muscly as I can be. Hopefully one day I can train in the Olympics or compete in the World’s Strongest Man but failing that I’d like to be a professional bodybuilder like my dad.
People may think I’ve been pushed into weightlifting, but I wouldn’t do anything I didn’t want to do. I do this because I love it. Other kids my age hang around the streets I like to train.
It feels sensational to have broken a world record. It’s not something many 12-year-olds can say they’ve achieved. But this is just the beginning I want to keep breaking records and setting a new world record every year if I can.
Have a look at the video below to Kyle him in action.
