World's smallest bodybuilder

Aditya "Romeo" Dev, just 2-feet 9-inches tall, is said to be "the world's smallest bodybuilder." The 19-year-old, who lives in Punjab, was honored by the Guinness Book of Records in 2006. From The Telegraph (portion of photo by Barcroft Media):


While most dwarfs have large heads compared to their bodies, Romeo is perfectly proportioned, and despite his diminutive stature has triceps, biceps, calves and thighs that would make many a full-grown man blush…

"I've been training as a bodybuilder for the last two years and by now I think I must be the strongest dwarf in the world," said Romeo.

Romeo is famous in his home country, and his father has spoken of his pride in his son's determination to overcome any difficulties in his path. "He has never been bothered at being so small. He has no inferiority complex. He is the jewel of our family."
