Mississauga firefighter sets Guinness World Record with hefty power move
A Mississauga firefighter is now in the record books for his athletic prowess.
Chris Cox recently set the Guinness World Record for heaviest weight lifted through a move called the "Turkish get-up" where he lifted 4,868.20 kg. (10,732.5 lbs.) in a span of one hour.
During the required time period Cox lifted a 21.4 kg kettle bell 202 times, beating the previous mark of 182 repetitions.
His achievement took place on May 16, but just recently the fact checkers at Guinness certified it to be a record-breaker.
A resident of Elora, Cox isn't the only one with world record bragging rights in his household.
His wife Belinda previously reached a Guinness World Record by completing the most "burpees" in one hour by a female.
