Handbalancing Feat

How about this handbalancing feat from the Russian circus, circa 1967? I’d say the neck strength of the two “bottom” men may be even more impressive.

The Russian Strongman Vsevolod Kherts

Vsevolod Kherts
The Royal Moscow Circus has performed on American shores for many years. If you caught their show from 1956 through 1967, you also probably got a chance to see Vsevolod Kherts lift some pretty amazing weights in entertaining ways. This pullover and press from a bridge with a 300 lb. thick-handled globe barbell is pretty outstanding on several levels.
