A Strongman sets world record by dragging bus loaded with 76 passengers and a dog

Strongman Simon Plant

Plasterer Simon Plant claimed a world record by using only one arm to pull a double decker bus loaded with 76 passengers and a dog.

He dragged the 17-ton load for 60 feet in 26 seconds and said: “I pulled it with my right arm, the one I use for plastering, Mirror reports

“It is good training to swing it around for five hours a day at work. But I also eat lots of jacket potatoes and meat to keep my strength up.

“This pull was very hard and wore me out. I certainly slept well and woke with only an ache,” said 25-stone Simon, 45, of Findern, near Derby.

He set the record at Ivy House, a unit for sick children, at Littleover, two miles from his home. It raised charity cash at a fun day at the centre.

The effort beat his owl one-armed pull of a 13-ton lorry for 50 feet in 25 seconds last year.

Simon, who calls himself “Power Plant,” trains every morning by dragging his transit van along the road after a big breakfast.

He already has a world record for hauling a line of cars.
