Strongman Zsolt ‘Popeye’ Sinka wants to pull an aircraft with his teeth for Expo 2020
Remember when you used to tie a string to a loose tooth so you could finally put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy? We don’t think that ever worked for this guy.
Zsolt ‘Popeye’ Sinka, a Hungarian strongman based in Dubai, plans on setting a new world record by pulling an Airbus A380 aircraft with his teeth as part of a show at Expo 2020 Dubai. Plenty of spinach then, Sinka?
Just to warm up for the big show, he also wanted to pull a Boeing 777 this year. Oh yeah, just a warm up.
“My plan is to set several new Guinness World Records here in Dubai. First, I want to try and pull a Boeing 777 with my teeth. Then, next year, during the Dubai 2020 World Expo, I want to pull an Airbus A380. I think it will be a good promotion during the Expo,” said the Dubai-based strongman.
"After that, I will try and set a new car-pulling record – maybe six to eight cars. Then maybe, I work with RTA and pull a big bus. I also have plans to stage a show on the Burj Al Arab helipad – I want to block two motorbikes with my teeth. That will be a great show, a great spectacle.”
The Dubai-based powerlifter has quite a few feats under his belt, including pulling a 180-seater Airbus A320, dragging the 50-ton aircraft for 39.2m in 52 seconds at Budapest airport, along with an 80-ton train.
And yes, all with his teeth.
Speaking of strongmen, The World’s Ultimate Strongman is coming back to the UAE, with The Mountain from Game of Thrones being one of the stars of the show. Get your tickets.
If you must know, Sinka cleans his teeth four or five times a day. Do the same and you may be able to pull planes…
