World's Smallest Bodybuilder

Meet Aditya "Romeo" Dev, who at just 2 ft 9 in. (0.84 m) is the world's smallest bodybuilder:

Pint-sized Romeo is well-known in his hometown of Phagwara, India - for his ability to lift 1.5kg dumbbells - despite his overall 9kg body weight.

Every day, crowds flock to the local gym to the see the mini-muscleman in training.

Unlike many dwarfs, Romeo is well proportioned, with a head circumference of 15in and a chest measurement of 20in.

Romeo said: "I've been training as a bodybuilder for the last two years and by now I think I must be the strongest dwarf in the world."

When I my daughter outgrew that tank top and those shorts and I dropped them in the Gaia Project clothes depository box I never dreamed they'd get sent to India!

Oh come on, I'm talking about the guy on the right! Jeez.

Although i´ve seen a guy as small as this fella over here in Brazil, who used to be a cover singer for a crappy singer, until he died, some of the pictures make me strongly believe that is a photoshop job by an indian guy with too much time to spare...
