Valentin Dikul
From being an aerial gymnast in the circus who broke his back to heavy lifter afterwards. Dikul refused to accept the wheelchair, he underwent multiple surgeries and just didn’t give up. Dikul tried all possible techniques of training while he was in the wheelchair, he was pushing himself without mercy until he couldn’t be able to get back into his wheelchair and would just simply collapse and sleep on the floor.


After two years of hard work, tears and sweat Dikul rose up and took his first steps! Shortly afterwards Dikul became a ‘strength juggler’ or circus strongman. The guy became so strong that lifting a horse, deadlifting a 460 kg barbell or letting a Volvo drive onto a platform he was supporting on his shoulders wasn’t a big deal. He also set several Guinness world records. What a strong spirit. Simply unbreakable!
