Meet the world’s smallest bodybuilder

An Indian midget standing at 2ft 9in tall and weighing at 20lb, is the world’s smallest body builder.

London: An Indian midget standing at 2ft 9in tall and weighing at 20lb, is the world’s smallest body builder.

The midget, whose name is Aditya ‘Romeo’ Dev has weight equivalent to a 1-year-old.

Aditya, also known as Arnie is 19-year-old and pumps iron with customised 3.3lb dumb-bells, equivalent to a 15st bloke lifting 35lb weights.

Romeo, who has bulked his chest to 20in, biceps to 6.5in and thighs to 8in and his gym sessions dressed up in kiddies’ cartoon vest, shorts, and trainers, attract crowds in Phagwara, Punjab.

“I’ve been training for two years and must be the world’s strongest midget,” the sun quoted him, as saying.

His earning comes from bodybuilding shows and dancing and he also aims to perform at London’s West End.

“He’s much more determined than most,” said his trainer Ranjeet Pal.

His parents, Anil and Keshmala are proud of him and called him “the family jewel”.
