Date April 3, 2019

In 2009, the name of Giuliano Stroe from Romania thundered to the whole world. At the age of 5, the boy was included in the Guinness Book of World Records for an incredible feat of coordination and strength.

Giuliano set a record for the fastest 33-foot hand-walk with a weight ball between his legs. The little bodybuilder performed this stunt in front of a live audience on an Italian TV show and woke up famous literally the next morning.

A year later, Stroe set the world record for the most 90-degree push-ups (an exercise in which the legs don’t touch the ground).

Giuliano started practicing in the gym with his father, a former gymnast, when he was 2.

Now the young athlete is 14. He lives in Italy together with his family.

Giuliano has a younger brother, Claudio, who also dreams of becoming a bodybuilder in the future.

Some might think that the boys were deprived of a normal childhood, but this is not so. Like any other kids, they used to spend plenty of time outdoors, watching cartoons, and playing with their peers.

Now Giuliano and Claudio focus on boxing and participate in various competitions.

Earlier, we wrote about Richard Sandrak who used to be dubbed “Little Hercules” for his ripped muscles and success in bodybuilding.
