Indian bodybuilder Pratik Vitthal Mohite confirmed as world shortest.
An Indian athlete who stands at 3 feet, 4 inches tall has been named the world’s shortest competitive bodybuilder by Guinness World Records.
Pratik Vitthal Mohite — who’s 25 years old — told Guinness World Records he began bodybuilding back in 2012, and then participated in his first competitive event in 2016.
“My family are very happy and proud of me and my friends are very supportive and helpful,” said Mohite.
Mohite was born with unusually short arms and legs and later was diagnosed with a form of dwarfism. He said a friend suggested he apply to Guinness to see if he is the world’s shortest bodybuilder, and he was confirmed to hold the record after a lengthy delay brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It was my dream to achieve a Guinness World Records title, and it’s such an honor to achieve it. I’m very happy and till now this will be my biggest achievement in my career,” said Mohite.
His strict training regime
“His morning kicks off early with a 30-minute run. After a healthy breakfast, which also comprehends special diet food, in the afternoon Pratik hits the gym for two hours,” said Guinness World Records. “He snaps some shots for his Instagram whilst training, keeping his followers updated on his progress. Another 30-minute run in the evening concludes his day.”
The strongman said he now has his sights set on breaking another world record: most push-ups in one minute. Good luck, dude.
