Stab at new record

A 28 YEAR-old Slovak is planning to break one of the most dangerous and painful world records by pushing a 17-ton truck using a spear strapped to his Adam's apple, all so he can avoid becoming a threat to society.

Kung-Fu master Robert Mikula will attempt to enter the Guinness Book of Records in May using what he described as his "vital internal energy".

The young martial arts expert, who trained under a Chinese master in Munich, is currently training five hours a day in the hope of capturing the record, and stopping himself from turning into a lethal weapon.

Mikula said his forthcoming attempt had been driven by a need to control his own awesome powers.

"I had to pass a physical test here so that the power I hold in my hands did not become a deadly weapon," he said.
