Finally, someone who can kick Gimli's ass

At just 2ft 9in, Indian muscleman Aditya 'Romeo' Dev is the world's smallest bodybuilder.

Pint-sized Romeo is well-known in his hometown of Phagwara, India - for his ability to lift 1.5kg dumbbells - despite his overall 9kg body weight. (Editor's note: Not to snark, but is lifting one-sixth of your body weight really that impressive? That would be equivalent to a 180-pound/82-kilogram man lifting 30-pound/13.6 kg dumbbells. Perhaps there is something about the physiology of dwarfs that make this more impressive, I dunno. Dwarf experts and/or expert dwarfs please enlighten us with your comments!)

A worried Gimli.
