Zafar Gill set world record by lifting 62Kg with ear
A Pakistani man has broken the world-record for “ear-lifting”, carrying almost 62 kilograms from a cord attached to his right ear.
Zafar Gill’s feat earned him a place in the book of Guinness World Records, as part of a day of record-breaking attempts in the Austrian capital Vienna on Sunday.
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 30-kilogram weight, Gill took up the record-breaking 61.7 kilograms with only a brief cry of pain.
Gill, who himself only weighs 90 kilograms, trains every day but insists he has never had any hearing problems due to his peculiar hobby.
