Today, competitions were held in the Dagestan village of Khadzhalmakhi, where three persons have broken world records in lifting weights attacked to hair, pulling up on a horizontal bar on one hand and keeping a 24-kilo weight by one leg.
One of world records was set by Shamil Magomedov, a resident of the above village. His task was to hold a 24-kilo weight by a leg, stretched out at 90 degrees, as long as possible. In his first try, Shamil Magomedov managed to keep the weight for a bit more than 6 seconds, but in the second try he set his personal and world record - 12.6 seconds.

One more record was set by Bulat Aliev who pulled himself up on the horizontal bar 25 times on one hand.
