A Russian bodybuilder has travelled to the top of the highest mountain in Europe and Russia – Mount Elbrus. He didn’t travel alone. He took his favorite 75 kilo (or around 150 lbs) barbell together with him on his shoulders. It took him eight days to reach the height of 5,642 meters (18,510 feet)! He got severely burned and was tired but still went forward and on September 6th he reached his goal. A few photos are inside.
Here is the man climbing on his way up.
He left his barbell on top of the mountain as a live monument of his achievement.
