Nov. 1 (UPI) -- A Ukrainian strongman nicknamed "Tug-Tooth" set a national record, and possibly a world record, by pulling a 677-ton cargo ship with his teeth.
Lviv native Oleg "Tug-Tooth" Skavych pulled the cargo ship Vereshchagino a distance of more than 52 feet to set what officials declared was a national record.
The feat also surpasses the current Guinness World Record, set by Russian Omar Hanapiev, who used his teeth to pull a 635-ton cargo ship a distance of just under 50 feet in 2001.
Officials said Skavych's attempt has been submitted to Guinness.
Skavych previously set a Guinness World Record when he used his teeth to pull a 21.5-ton tram a distance of 22.3 feet.
