Russian Federation, Tyumen
August 13, 2016 at 12:20 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russian powerlifter Oskana Kosheleva impressed crowds at UTair air show in Tyumen on Saturday when she pulled an 8.6-tonne Mi-8 helicopter almost two metres.

Crowds cheered the sportswoman as she successfully pulled the aircraft on her third try. Kosheleva compared the challenge to a previous one, stating that: "It was easier to pull the car -the railway car, it was [pulled] smoothly. It just rolled as cheese on butter and that was it. But here there is asphalt, it is difficult."

Master of sports in powerlifting, Oksana Kosheleva pulled a 17-tonne trolley in 2015 and made it into the record books of the Irkutsk Region for moving a 10-tonne KamAZ truck for 20 metres in 2014.
