A new world record for unbending horseshoes was set in the village of Kazhymukan in the Akmola region of Kazakhstan on Wednesday in honor of the 150th anniversary of Kazakh wrestler Kazhymukan Munaitpasov. This was announced today by the Kazakhstan Athletes Union.
Kazakh strongman Sergei Tsyrulnikov broke the world record for unbending calibrated horseshoes, set by a citizen of Lithuania. The previous world record was equal to two bent horseshoes per minute, but this time Sergei Tsyrulnikov managed to unbend four werkman horseshoes in 37 seconds.
“This record is very significant to me. Today is the birthday of the legendary wrestler, my spiritual mentor, teacher Kazhymukan Munaitpasov. I planned to straighten three horseshoes, but it turned out four. Each horseshoe can carry a weight of 940 kilograms. Preparation for the record has been going on for 12 years, all this time I have been promoting strength culture, "- shared his impressions of the world record holder in strength numbers Sergei Tsyrulnikov.
“We have specially checked - these metal horseshoes are made of hardened metal, withstand a load of about 940 kilograms. These horseshoes are not familiar to us, they are made in the Netherlands, and they are rightfully considered the most durable in the world. This is the uniqueness of this ", - said the representative of the book of records Kuandyk Kudaibergenov.
April 7 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the recognized master of classical wrestling, multiple world champion. Kazhymukan Munaitpasov is the first Kazakh to become world champion in French wrestling, multiple winner of world, regional, Russian, and later all-Union championships in classic wrestling among super heavyweights.
