Tallinn, May 21 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A group of 20 men from Estonia have set a new world record by pulling a 20,000-tonne ship.
To set the record, the participants had to move the 12-deck Baltic Queen vessel, measuring 212 metres by 29 metres, at least 10 metres.
The team consisted of athletes who had participated in major European and world strongman competitions. They also included Andrus Murumets, known for single-handedly pushing a 40-tonne Boeing 737-500.
Last year, the same group moved a train weighing 200 metric tonnes.
