New world record in ‘ear-lifting’

‘A Pakistani man has broken the world-record for “ear-lifting”, carrying almost 62 kilograms from a cord attached to his right ear. [..]

Mr Gill had to use a special headgrip to protect both his ear and temple, as he lifted the weight for seven seconds about 10 centimetres off the ground.

After warming up with a more modest 30kg weight, Mr Gill took up the record-breaking 61.7 kilos with only a brief cry of pain.

Mr Gill, who himself only weighs 90 kilos, trains everyday but insists he has never had any hearing problems due to his peculiar hobby.’
