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.
