Abandoning a bid to set Guinness world record for balancing spoons on his face, a 39-year-old Georgian sports coach instead balances 50 on his body in an apparent feat of ‘magnetic’ attraction.
Etibar Elchyev, a 39-year-old kick-boxing trainer, discovered his talent of attracting metal to his body less than a year ago but has quickly taken to the world of magnetism.
Initially The Georgian Guinness Book of Records Commission announced Mr Elchyev wanted to break the record for ‘the most spoons balanced on the face’ category by balancing 27 spoons.
However after an unexplained change of plan, the kick-boxing trainer managed to balance 50 metal spoons around his neck and chest.
After the still impressive feat was successfully achieved, a happy Mr Elchyev promised there was more to come.
