On Friday October 21st, hundreds of people gathered at the Kadam Train station in Damascusto witness fellow Syrian, Adnan Ismail al-Awad, pull off an incredible stunt - Move an 800 feet train with his own muscle power.

While the train weighed 2,500 kilograms, the strongman believes that because he was pulling up an incline, it becomes lot heavier - almost four times as much, or about 100,000 kg. While that may be a slight exaggeration, even pulling 2,500 kilograms using sheer body weight sounds incredible to us!
