Two new records for Strongman Patrik
Patrik Baboumian continues to excel in strongman sports having moved from the under 105kg category.
His bodyweight is around 123kg and he has been competing. In August 2012 he entered a German competition where he set a World Record by lifting a 50 litre beer keg weighing 150.2kg overhead. He later attempted a heavier keg weighing 159kg keg, which he was close to completing.
He has also taken on one of the most challenging and painful events in strongman – the fronthold. This involves holding a 20kg weight in front of the body with straight arms. Patrik broke the existing World Record by 10 seconds, extending it to 86 seconds.
