Hair Today…Gone Tomorrow!


‘Ironman’ Manjit smashes world record with hair-raising attempt

LEICESTER’S very own ‘Ironman’ Manjit Singh, has gabbed himself a Guinness World Record after pulling a seven-ton bus with his hair through London’s Battersea Park.

The 59-year-old celebrated Guinness World Record Day in style after pulling the bus a phenomenal 21.2 metres.

The feat was even more remarkable considering the bus was attached via a clamp to his thick ponytail.

The Leicester security consultant admitted “it was painful, but worth it.”

Manjit’s victory was sweeter following a failed attempt two years ago to pull a double-decker bus with the ears. But disappointment then drove the 59-year-old on.

After the event he said: “It was painful, but it was worth it. I could only think about my legs and head and keeping on going to set a record, to go as far as I could.”

“I will never be discouraged by defeat, because I know that success can be waiting around the next corner,” he said.

“The only way to get there is to try again and stay positive.”
