IRKUTSK , Russia, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- A Russian powerlifter flexed her way into the country's record books by dragging a nearly-19-ton tram car a distance of 16.4 feet.

Irkutsk native Oksana Kosheleva set what is believed to be a national record for Russia by dragging the 18.7-ton tram car after being unable to secure her intended target -- a 22-ton plane.

"I was preparing to move a plane but eventually ended up with a tram car. It was not hard, actually. It should be longer, next time we will make it longer," Kosheleva told reporters after her accomplishment. "We may make it two tram cars or three, or four."

Kosheleva said she is hoping to drag the plane next year to attempt a Guinness World Record.

"Emotional disposition is important. You should clearly understand whether you need it or not. If you do not need it, you will not succeed in this challenge," she said.
