The Baranoff Gladiators were a group of German acrobats who headlined several circuses in the 1920’s and 30’s. Above you’ll see a rare photo of their most amazing feat taken in Berlin around 1927. A conservative estimate of the amount of weight supported on the neck of bridging bottom man would be 500 lbs. Having done both bridging feats and handbalancing, I can tell you that this one is as impressive as they come.
