'I feel like the luckiest man in the world': Record-breaking dwarf bodybuilder finds love with 6'3'-tall transgender woman
As the only man in the world to lift four times his own body weight,
Anton Kraft is pound-for-pound the strongest man in the world. The 4'4'
dwarf, who resides in Florida, has lifted as much as 36 stone. With
women, he is no less ambitious. Kraft , 52, only dates women who are
more than a foot taller than he is. For the past six months he has been
dating 6'3' China Bell. Bell, 43, who was born male and has since
transitioned, admits she was unsure when he first asked her out but was
quickly bowled over by his weightlifting skills.
'I'm different and he's different, and where we're from, different is good.' In 10 years of power lifting, Kraft claims to have the highest bench press record of all time for his weight class. But it seems he may have pushed his body too far. He says he has 'technically died' five times before being resuscitated - ranging from drowning to falling out of a window.
Doctors also fear he may have a heart attack if he keeps up his all-action lifestyle. Kraft is undeterred. 'Some people say that what I do is weakness, or micro-man syndrome - that I want to do something that I am not built for, to prove something,' he said. 'But I believe there's only one winner - second is first loser. Second doesn't count. 'Overall, I am one of the five strongest guys in the world, regardless of height and weight. 'And I am the only guy in the world who has ever benched four-times his body weight.'
