When other boys of his age are probably playing outside and just being normal 5-year-old kids, Giuliano Stroe goes to the gym and works out with his dad, a practice he’s been keeping ever since he was just two years of age. Giuliano doesn’t mind and perhaps the fact that he’s just made it into the Guinness Book of Records has a lot to do with it, World Records Academy says.
Giuliano lives with his parents in Italy and, according to his father, he’s been his constant companion to the gym since he was only two. He likes to train and does it whenever he gets the chance, the dad says for the international press. However, in the little time when he’s not lifting weights, Giuliano likes to play – and, apparently, to set world records for the strongest boy on the face of the planet.
“Romanian Giuliano Stroe, five, has been training since the age of two in Italy – where he lives with his family – and now he performed the fastest ever 10m hand walk with a weight ball between his legs – setting the world record for the Strongest Boy In The World. Giuliano Stroe, the Strongest Boy In The World, performed the stunt in front of a cheering live audience, and has become an Internet sensation as hundreds of thousands of people have watched the clip of him performing the stunt on YouTube.” the above-mentioned publication writes.
“He has been going to the gym since he was born. I have trained hard all my life and always take him with me. But he is never allowed to practice on his own. He is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play.” Giuliano’s father, Iulian Stroe, reveals. Although with hard-rock abs and arms that could shame an adult man, Giuliano insists he still does “kids stuff” when he’s not weight lifting, like painting, playing outside and watching cartoons.
He also says he’s not letting fame get to his head, but that he feels an utmost delight when he sees the crowd cheering and applauding him after his performances. GMY News says “there is nothing normal” about this 5-year-old boy.
