A Malaysian “Raja Gigi” (means “King Tooth”) Rathakrishnan Velu pulled a seven-coach train, weighing about 300 tonnes at a railway station in Kuala Lumpur on August 30, 2007. He sat down and using a steel rope clenched in his mouth, a feat that organizers said was a new world record for the heaviest weight pulled with teeth.

His supporters and onlookers clapped and shouted “Malaysia Boleh!” (means “Malaysia Can!”) to boost up the spirit of Rathakrishnan when he performed the stunt.


Rathakrishnan Velu hauled the 297.1-metric-ton (327.50 U.S. tons) train over 2.8 meters (9 feet, 2.2 inches) along tracks.


The feat is expected to be recognized by Guinness World Records in two to three weeks after verification of the data.
