Record broken, teeth intact

Rathakrishnan Velu pulling a train with his teethA Malaysian nicknamed King Tooth pulled a seven-coach train using a steel rope clenched in his teeth yesteray.

Organisers said the feat set a new world record for the heaviest weight pulled with a set of pearly whites.

Grunting and gasping, Rathakrishnan Velu's neck muscles strained and his face contorted as he hauled the train weighing 297.1 tonnes over 2.8m along tracks.

The feat is expected to be recognised by Guinness World Records within three weeks, said Mr Rathakrishnan's manager, Anna Chidambar.

One more picture after the jump.
