In New York, a strongman pulls a 33,400-pound bus for a Guinness World Record.
In New York, a 58-year-old Canadian strongman set a Guinness World Record by using his upper body to pull a 33,400-pound bus 16 feet.
Kevin Fast, who appeared on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan, broke the record for the heaviest vehicle hauled using only the upper body by pulling a 40-foot, all-electric Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus down West 67th Street in Manhattan.
Fast shattered his own record set in 2017 in Cobourg, Ontario, when he hauled a 24,427-pound truck.
In a statement, Frank Annicaro, acting president of the MTA Bus Company and senior vice president of New York City Transit’s Department of Buses, said, “We are excited to be part of a historic Guinness World Records attempt to pull the heaviest vehicle by the upper body, and congratulate Kevin Fast on his exciting achievement.”
The MTA, according to Annicaro, welcomed the opportunity to draw national attention to its all-electric buses.
He stated, “Having one of our all-electric, clean energy buses pulled on a national stage provides us an exciting opportunity to promote the MTA’s continuous commitment to providing a modern, sustainable, and reliable bus system that New Yorkers deserve while safeguarding our environment.”
