Estonian men haul 20,000-ton cruise ship, set world record

Estonia’s 20 strongest men set a world record on Friday by pulling a 20,000-ton cruise ship, national TV said.

To set the record, the participants had to move the 12-desk Baltic Queen vessel, measuring 212 by 29 meters (695 feet by 95 feet), at least ten meters.

The team consisted of athletes known for their participation in major European and world strongman competitions. They included Andrus Murumets, known for single-handedly pushing a 40-ton Boeing 737-500.

Last year, the same group moved a train weighing 200 metric tons.
